CENTAUR ROBOTICS LAUNCHES CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN

Invest in the future of mobility

British startup Centaur Robotics is looking to raise a minimum of £600,000 on Crowdcube to begin full production of the Centaur, its revolutionary personal electric vehicle, by the end of the year.

The company began life in 2014 when company founder David Rajan failed to find a wheelchair that suited the needs of his son Alfie, who has cerebral palsy.

The Centaur has already been backed by a number of high net worth individuals and angel investors in the technology sector, many of whom are investing again in this round.

Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, awarded Centaur Robotics a grant of £50,000 in May in recognition of the vehicle’s future role in reducing exposure to viruses in care homes and hospitals. By 2024, the global market for personal electric vehicles will be worth £7.5 billion, the result of an ageing population with a demand for independent living and the means to pay for it.

Centaur Robotics is led by a highly experienced team of technology executives, engineers and designers from the likes of Oracle and Ford.
