Greenfield Robotics is pleased to announce that seasoned angel investor Shihao Liu has invested in the company.
Shihao has invested in a number of startups over the past several years. Some notable investments include Quanergy, a LIDAR company, whose most recent round surpassed $2B valuation; MeetingBird, subsequently acquired by Front and recently raised $59M Series C; and GrubMarket, a farm-to-table delivery service which raised $92M over 5 rounds.
Shihao is also an active supporter of impact companies, with investments like Mighty Buildings, a stealth-mode company which is making housing more affordable with 3DP tech and automation; and Prometheus Fuels, a Y-Combinator graduate which removes carbon from the atmosphere and turns it into gasoline and jet fuel.
“I love being involved in companies which are making a positive impact in the world,” says Shihao. “That’s exactly what Greenfield Robotics is doing, by getting chemicals out of food and enabling carbon sequestration in soil. After meeting the team I knew that these guys are onto something big, and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
“Shihao shows terrific vision in his portfolio; his investments are on the leading edge of technology and societal trends,” says Clint Brauer, CEO of Greenfield Robotics. “We’re thrilled to have his vote of confidence.”
Greenfield Robotics is developing robots to replace chemicals in agriculture, and to enable large-scale implementation of carbon farming, a new system of farming that holds the promise of sequestering carbon in farmland on a global scale.
