6 River Systems

Amazon’s acquisition of Kiva Systems sent a shockwave through the robotics world. Here was a mobile robotics company with an unprecedented degree of commercial success becoming a key piece of Amazon’s strategy to make their supply chain a competitive advantage. Overnight companies seem to come out of the woodwork to fill the void that Kiva had left in the landscape.

Before meeting with the founders of 6 River we had evaluated dozens of companies seeking to be successors to the Kiva throne. We aligned with 6 River systems because of their “industry-first,” approach to building the technology solutions needed to make fulfillment more efficient. Furthermore, given the founders’ backgrounds in selling and implementing thousands of robots during their time at Kiva, they brought first-hand knowledge of what it takes to work with customers in order to operate well-designed, reliable fulfillment automation solutions.

The founders understand that automation is just the beginning. In order for customer-centric fulfillment to scale, a new, automated digital supply chain is required. 6 River systems is building the end to end solutions required to make this possible.

6 River Systems unveils warehouse robots that show workers the way

When Amazon acquired Kiva Systems in 2012, other retailers and third-party fulfillment centers panicked. The e-commerce giants took Kiva’s robots off the market, leaving their competitors without an important productivity tool. Lots of newcomers have cropped up to help warehouses keep up with demand since then, but one of the most hotly anticipated robots in this space was under wraps — until today.

Common Networks

Common Networks was founded on the idea that everyone should have fast, affordable access to broadband internet. And right now, they don’t. In fact, the U.S. currently ranks 16th in average internet speed.

Many suburban areas still suffer from low-speed connectivity, delivered at high costs from opaque, legacy providers.

We met the Common team through one of our existing portfolio company CEOs who had attended the same high school. He provided a compelling introduction, and it was easy to see why; the founding team is one of the most committed, creative, and cohesive we’ve met.

The home broadband space is huge, yet currently dominated by a very small number of incumbents. These organizations are trying to tackle broadband by digging fiber trenches, but the cost and complexity is proving to be intractable. Common’s wireless technology solves the key infrastructure problem. On the product side, they are converting a commodity “internet” into a differentiated service offering. Customers are not driven by the speed or latency of the cable hitting their router, they just want to ensure that their internet delivers Game of Thrones to their iPad when and where they want.

Common is building a human-centered, end-to-end approach to get amazing internet to people where and how they want it.

You would think that living in tech-savvy California would guarantee you high-speed internet. Well, think again — some suburban areas, like Alameda, are still experiencing low-speed connectivity at high costs. Common Networks is trying to solve that problem and today announced funding of $7 million in a round led by Eclipse Ventures.
