Bigfinite Closes Series B Financing with Atlantic Bridge and Honeywell Ventures to Drive Disruption in Manufacturing Analytics

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – (November 4, 2019) – Bigfinite, Inc. (Bigfinite), the leading manufacturing data analytics platform company for regulated industries, announced that it has closed $15 million in financing with Atlantic Bridge, Honeywell Ventures and Institut Català de Finances.

“Atlantic Bridge has an extraordinary track record of investment into the next wave of computing including in artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and Industry 4.0 while Honeywell Ventures’ expertise in the Internet of Things, analytics, and advanced manufacturing make this an ideal investment partnership for Bigfinite,” said CEO and co-founder, Pep Gubau. “We are honored and look forward to partnering with these organizations to further scale Bigfinite’s footprint within the life science manufacturing industry.”

Pharmaceuticals and Biotech companies have no doubt that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here to stay.
