Today we have announced our investment in FATMAP, the outdoor adventure platform and 3D mapping tech company.
Our support will help FATMAP with their global ambition to be the go-to destination for adventure and outdoor activities. Skiers, hikers, trail-runners, mountain-bikers and climbers can all use FATMAP technology to navigate the world more easily.
Misha Gopaul, Chief Executive Officer, FATMAP, said: “Recent innovation in mapping has been focused on urban environments and until now the rest of the planet has been stuck with outdated tools. Our new global platform addresses the growing need for people to disconnect and spend time in the outdoors and a key part of our mission to help people to have better, safer adventures. Our ultimate vision is to become the go-to destination for outdoor adventure and travel and InMotion Ventures are the perfect partner to help us achieve that.”
Sebastian Peck, Managing Director, InMotion Ventures, said: “Delivering great digital experiences that are consistent with our brands is fundamental to our strategy. Investing in the next generation of technology enabling travel and outdoor adventures is becoming an important focus area for InMotion Ventures. We are very excited to be working with Misha Gopaul and his leadership team at FATMAP to build the ultimate tool that allows outdoor adventurers and professional athletes to discover and master the most challenging territory.”
This is InMotion’s second investment of 2018, with FATMAP being the 13th company to join our portfolio.
