Pivotal Commware Raises $17 Million
Communications startup Pivotal Commware announced the close of $17 million in Series A financing. Six investors contributed to the round, among them DIG Investments, The Thermo Companies, Lux Capital, and Intellectual Ventures.
Pivotal Commware was established in 2016 to commercialize a breakthrough in electromagnetic physics, Holographic Beam Forming (HBF). Pivotal’s founders recognized years ago that wireless demand for data would outgrow the complex coding, multiplexing and modulation schemes that network operators have deployed to date. Pivotal assembled a team experienced in advanced commercial antenna and RF circuit design, advanced DARPA technology programs, and, uniquely, active/nonlinear metamaterials.
The company revealed that it will bring to market communications products that use its proprietary HBF technology.
