Caper, a provider of AI-powered autonomous checkout shopping carts, closed a $10 million in Series A funding round.
Lux Capital, a venture capital firm that invests in emerging science and technology startups, led the financing round with participation from the company’s seed investors, First Round Capital, Y Combinator, Hardware Club, Sidekick Fund, and FundersClub.
Red Apple Group, a well-known New York supermarket chain that operates Gristedes and D’Agostino, as well as other undisclosed strategic investors, also participated in the round.
