PRESS RELEASE — Nornir, a Norwegian deep tech company, announced a $30 Million investment commitment from Global Emerging Markets, or GEM, the $3.4 Billion, Luxembourg based, private alternative investment group that focuses on emerging markets.
Under the agreement, GEM will provide Nornir with a Share Subscription Facility of up to €30 Million for a 36 month term following the public listing of the Nornir common stock. Nornir will control the timing and maximum amount of each drawdown under the facility and has no minimum subscription obligation.
Nornir’s unique “Hive Mind” network technology operates in the AI driven Smart City and smart asset management industry; which is one of the fastest growing markets in the world expected to reach $100 trillion in 2021. The industry is morphing into the Internet of Things (IoT) era which opens up new markets and opportunities where digital assets become intelligent and embedded into various additional representations like 3D models (BIM) and Digital Twins. One of the main benefits using Nornir’s machine learning infrastructure is that the device itself becomes “alive” and tells the system when it needs to be replaced, who can replace it and when. Autonomous systems will drastically reduce cost and simplify administration.
“With GEM’s investment, we will scale and implement our international go-to-market strategy. I’m very happy to see that our hard work is being materialized and I’m looking forward to further developing our services.” – says Paal Kristian Levang CEO, Nornir
