CoreTigo, an industrial wireless IoT communications company, raised $10 million in an investment round led by Qualcomm Ventures and Sierra Ventures. The Israel-based company’s financing round also garnered interest from Magma Venture Partners, Cardumen Capital and Meron Capital.

The company says it will use the funding to further develop its technology and reach more partners who can benefit from its intellectual property. CoreTigo was founded in 2017 and is focused on helping manufacturers gain more insights from data in their factories.

The company is working on the IO-Link wireless communications standard, which is used to connect digital sensors to industrial equipment to develop automated processes. CoreTigo’s technology is “targeting standards-based low power, low cost and robust wireless mission critical connectivity. We believe it has great potential to impact the industrial space along with technologies like 5G,” Boaz Peer, director at Qualcomm Ventures, said in a prepared statement.
