AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gembah, a market leader in end-to-end product development, has announced a $3.275M seed round of funding led by Silverton Partners. ATX Venture Partners and Capital Factory also participated in the funding round.
Gembah has built a global manufacturing network of over 700 factories and a growing product development network with experts in every product category from product design to electrical and mechanical engineering. Gembah plans to utilize the new funding for platform development and to grow its team and network of partners both domestically and overseas. Total funding raised to date is $3.775M.
With e-commerce growing 30% in the past two years, and COVID-19 forcing even more retail businesses to online-only models, Gembah is uniquely situated to power the global product creation market. The platform leverages machine learning to eliminate the traditional market inefficiencies involved in designing and manufacturing products.
“We believe that humans are creators, it’s what separates us from all the other species on the planet,” said Gembah President and Founder Zack Leonard. “With the new round of funding from our valued venture partners, we will continue to enable that creative spirit in a much more democratized and standardized way. By strengthening our network and honing product development, we plan to bring lead time from inception to shipment down even further, fueling the global product innovation engine just when we need it most.”
