An AI-powered energy tech company has raised additional funding and relocated it's main office to Canada.
Ambyint, a Canadian-founded company that's had a Houston presence for a few years, has announced its latest round of funding and new headquarters. The software company provides energy customers with its AI-powered production and artificial lift optimization platform.
The funding comes from existing investors, Houston-based Mercury and Montrose Lane, plus two new investors, BDC Capital and Accelerate Fund III. The undisclosed amount of funding will go toward customer growth, hiring, and new enhancements to the technology, including expanding emissions mitigation capabilities.
"We have the wind in our sails and are extremely proud to see this transaction close,” Benjamin Kemp, CEO of Ambyint, says in a news release. “This investment allows us to double down on the energy market and further our AI-enabled optimization platform. Validation from our customers, talented employees, and investors is most welcome as we continue to scale.”
"Given the uncertainty in the venture capital market, attracting new investors like BDC Capital and Accelerate Fund III, who have followed Ambyint’s journey for several years, demonstrates how far we have come and the exciting future ahead of us," Kemp, who's served as CEO since 2021, adds.
The company also announced its new main office in Calgary. Previously, the Houston office operated as the company's headquarters.
“We have had the benefit of seeing the Ambyint platform and team develop over the past six years," says Mercury Managing Director Adrian Fortino says in the release. "We believe they are now poised to dramatically expand their industry footprint and improve customer emissions.”
Ambyint continues to add sustainability and emissions-related functions platform, including CO2 and methane emission tracking and mitigation.
"Utilizing advanced AI, Ambyint is addressing a significant opportunity in upstream oil and gas by increasing production while reducing GHG emissions," Joseph Regan, managing partner from BDC Capital’s Innovation Venture Fund, says in the statement. "They are leading the charge between their impressive technological progress and respected, industry-leading customers. We believe Ambyint’s AI software will be the standard operating procedure in this sector."
