Neura raises $2 million to help connect the Internet of Things

Neura, a leading early stage technology company focused on connecting the Internet of Things, announced today it has secured $2 million in funding, led by venture capital firm Greenhouse Capital Partners, alongside SingTel Innov8 Ventures, Pitango Venture Capital, TriplePoint Ventures, and prominent angel investors, including Ben Narasin and Isaac Applbaum. Neura is a graduate of Silicon Valley based accelerator UpWest Labs.
