YC-backed Pivot Robots raises funding from NuVentures

AI startup Pivot Robots has raised funds from early-stage investor NuVentures for an undisclosed amount.

The startup was a part of Y Combinator’s 2024 cohort.

Founded in 2023 by Siddharth Girdhar and Vignesh Rajmohan, Pivot Robots uses artificial intelligence to power automation in the manufacturing sector. The dou had earlier worked with AI and robotics teams at companies such as Meta, Google and Uber. 

“We are excited to partner with NuVentures because they provide us with support in finding customers and talent across both US and India, which are both manufacturing hubs,” said Girdhar.

Pivot Robots uses AI vision control software to automate industrial robots, and with it the startup has an immediate purpose of addressing the labour shortage in manufacturing in the US. Its first product is designed to address the task of grinding metal parts. 

Its AI vision control software puts the startup’s technology much ahead of traditional robotic automation as it gives industrial robots the ability to adapt. 

NuVentures was among the first backers of companies such as Mu Sigma and Acko, and counts startups such as PocketAces, Foxtale, Geist Beer and Third Wave among its more than 40 portfolio companies.
