Start-up tech firm lands funding to support growth of business

A start-up technology company providing 3D visualisation software has secured £500,000 in equity investment.

Amutri has secured backing from GameTech Ventures and the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Investment Fund, managed by The FSE Group.

The £500,000m funding round will support the growth of the business, supporting further product development, marketing, and sales.

Amutri, founded in 2021 as part of the Falmouth Launchpad entrepreneur accelerator programme, has developed technology that enables stakeholders of architectural and engineering projects to create and share 3D content and view rich 3D experiences powered by cutting-edge gaming technology, on any device quickly and easily.

This allows design teams to re-imagine how they work together and engage with their customers, as well as enhance stakeholder experiences to generate better engagement and increase sales.

Although the benefits of 3D Visualisation technology are clear, it’s difficult to adopt and expensive to maintain. Amutri is building a step-change product that delivers a simple path to adopting 3D Visualisation technology, making the technology easy to access, rapid and cost-effective, for the first time.

Michael Calver, Amutri chief executive, said: “As a young and ambitious company, we recognise the importance of support in realising our goals. This investment will propel us forward in further developing our innovative products to lower the entry point to 3D Visualisation technology for many industries. We value GameTech Ventures’ and The FSE Group’s confidence in our vision and are thankful for their support at this early stage. We look forward to continued collaboration as we work towards achieving our growth plans.”

Meg Salt, Investment Manager at The FSE Group, added: “Amutri is an exciting disruptor in 3D Visualisation. Their technology has garnered positive feedback from end users and has a large addressable market. The experienced team has already established a strong pipeline of international clients for whom Amutri is removing barriers to producing 3D experiences. The company is poised for rapid commercialisation and further functionality in 2024 and we are delighted to be working with them as they continue to grow.”

Lachlan Gowrie-Smith, partner at GameTech Ventures said “Amutri are building a paradigm shifting technology for 3D Visualisation, expanding access and lowering costs for whole new categories of businesses and consumers. Their approach demonstrates the power of games technology to drive innovation across different industries and applications. Michael and his experienced team are perfectly positioned to deliver on the promise of this vision.”
