AI Startup Tiliter Secured $7.5M in Funding Round Backed by IEC


Tiliter, a Sydney based retail tech startup has now secured $7.5 million in funding.

Tiliter is founded by Marcel Herz, Martin Karafilis, in the year 2017. It is an Artificial Intelligence provider whose technology uses computer vision to recognize products without barcodes.

Its technology automatically identifies items without the need for barcodes, price stickers, and packaging, which makes it easier for shoppers to manage at the time of self-checkout.

Executive Opinion

CEO and co-founder of Tiliter Marcel Herz, said, “As an industry, we’re just at the beginning of how AI combined with computer vision will shape the future for brick-and-mortar and online shopping. It was important that we partner with investors that understand the new dynamics in retail innovation and the massive opportunity arising from this change”.
Martin Karafilis, COO and co-founder of Tiliter, said, “There has been an increased focus for Tiliter to create a plug-and-play solution for retailers and remove the operational friction of adopting cashier-less technology, particularly during the COVID pandemic. The end-to-end capability of Tiliter’s dedicated hardware and software is an example of how Tiliter’s recognition technology can be easily installed and used anywhere in the world at a lower cost than currently offered autonomous store solutions.”

Tiliter’s Latest Funding

The round was backed by the Investec Emerging Companies with participation from New York’s Cornell University and Eleanor Venture.

The company intends to use the new funds to scale its expansion across the US and Europe with many supermarkets.
