Instead Of Ten-Figure Funding, This Robotaxi Startup Has Actual Customers

Among the big auto Goliaths and their swollen check-writing wrists, there’s a little startup armed with a slingshot and bragging rights. That startup is Voyage, and it has some lessons to teach the mobility sector.

The team who spun out of Udacity’s self-driving car nanodegree program has raised just over $20M to date, per CEO Oliver Cameron. For reference, that’s two orders of magnitude smaller than the last investment round announced by GM’s Cruise. And unlike Cruise, Voyage has customers today.
