VEERUM has secured CA$9.3 million in funding to drive its growth as a premier provider of digital twin software solutions. Idea Well Capital Partners, BDC Capital’s Industrial Innovation Venture Fund, Evok Innovations, and Builders VC led the round.

As per Gartner, a digital twin is a digital representation of a physical entity or system. Digital twins of physical assets usually can indeed be useful for a variety of reasons. These include simulation, analysis, understanding system behaviour, real-time data capture, performance optimization, risk mitigation, as well as enhanced collaboration. Hence, digital twin technology is revolutionizing industries by creating virtual replicas of physical assets, processes, and systems.

VEERUM’s successful funding is a testament to the growing recognition of the value and potential of digital twin technology. Further, the ability to create virtual replicas brings immense value in terms of planning, design, maintenance, and operations across various industries.

VEERUM is a SaaS provider that connects asset information to a 3D model of client asset, project, facility, or module. Founded in 2014, the company is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta in Canada. It claims that its innovative platform allows organizations to work more efficiently and safely, providing real-time insights and actionable intelligence.
