(VentureBeat) Robotics startup Marble has raised $10 million in a series A round of funding from Tencent, Lemnos, CrunchFund, and Maven Ventures. Marble had previously raised $5 million. Marble debuted its autonomous food-delivery robots last April in partnership with Yelp and later announced a partnership with DoorDash.
Marble said it plans to double down on its “last-mile logistics” efforts, which will include looking beyond food delivery to pharmaceuticals and the broader retail realm. “The way that goods are delivered to your doorstep hasn’t changed,” noted Marble CEO and cofounder Matt Delaney. “We need to move toward a more efficient, sustainable supply chain model where we’re solving for the logistical headaches that plague the ecommerce economy, like stolen packages, order returns, and failed delivery attempts.”
