Music-hardware startup Roli takes investment from Sony
Posted on: 5 juin 2018, by : Stuart Dredge

British instrument-maker Roli has received new investment from tech giant Sony, through the latter’s VC arm Sony Innovation Fund. CEO Roland Lamb told Bloomberg that the deal is a “significant investment and relationship for us”.
While Roli isn’t saying how much Sony invested, TechCrunch notes that before this deal, Roli was listed on investment site PitchBook as having raised $46m, but now that figure is more than $50m. 
Lamb has been talking about how Sony’s investment plays in to Roli’s wider plans. “We’re developing new music-making tools across hardware and software. It’s part of our long-term plan to create the first totally integrated hardware-software platform for music creation. The funding from SIF accelerates this, and positions us to continue focusing on innovative research and development as we scale,” he said.
