Monsieur the robot bartender raises $2 million in funding


It’s Saturday night and you’re desperately scrounging through your fridge to find a few mixer options to suit the pregaming desires of you and your friends, but all you’ve got is an old looking bottle of cranberry juice. It ain’t easy to be the one mixing the drinks. Well, an artificially intelligent robotic bartender called Monsieur just raised $2 million to make getting your margarita on a whole lot easier. The seed-stage fundraise was led by BIP Capital and comes about a year after it debuted a successful Kickstarter campaign.

The robo-bartender is now $2 million richer! Atlanta-based startup Monsieur, which makes robotic bartenders, announced a $2 million seed round of venture funding yesterday. BIP Capital led the round, followed by Base Ventures and TechSquare Labs. Tennessee Titans linebacker Derrick Morgan and Los Angeles Clippers power forward Glen Davis also participated in the round. Monsieur claims it has developed what is literally the first AI robot that can bartend and pour drinks. The robot runs in conjunction with Monsieur-produced apps for iOS and Android devices. The robot’s mixology skills and pours have laser-like accuracy, company executives say, and are, according to a release, “precisely tailored to meet the most discerning tastes, all at the touch of a button.”
