Rewired Sells London Machine Learning Stake

NYON, SWITZERLAND: The Rewired robotics-focused venture studio has sold its stake in London-based enterprise machine learning company Seldon. Rewired first backed Seldon during its Seed fundraising in August 2017 and has recouped a 148% return on investment (36.7% annualized) by selling its shares during Seldon’s latest Series A fundraising.

Rewired says that it remains optimistic about the future of London as a cluster for world-leading artificial intelligence and machine learning innovations. The Rewired exit from Seldon coincides with investors including Cambridge Innovation Capital and Albion Capital injecting £7.1m of new funding into the Shoreditch-based firm in a sign of confidence in the UK artificial intelligence sector.

Laurent Bischof, Board Director at Rewired, said:

“On this occasion we have played our role in building a business with global potential, and the right decision is to exit this investment into the hands of other capable investors who are committed to continuing to build a world class company. The new funding that Seldon has just closed is testament to the strength of the business going forward.”

Philippe Erwin, Special Advisor at Rewired, said:

“Rewired is committed to being actively involved in our global portfolio of investments across machine learning, robotics and the technologies of the AI economy. With our very high levels of liquidity, we continue to privately back growth-stage AI and robotics ventures worldwide.”
