Recent $30M Growth Round Led by Zeev Ventures and Insight Partners, with Participation from Spider Capital and UpWest
HOUSTON, (August 16, 2021) – Imubit, the leader of artificial intelligence (AI) process optimization for refiners and chemical operators, has raised $50 million to bring its Closed-Loop Neural Networks to every process manufacturing plant around the globe.
Imubit’s Closed-Loop Neural Network platform is an AI process optimization solution that enables hydrocarbon processing plant operators to discover, engineer and monetize process optimization opportunities considered impossible until now. Powered by its patent-pending Deep Learning Process Control® technology, Imubit’s solution allows the plant to execute its most profitable operational strategies on a 24/7 basis.
Gil Cohen, Imubit’s CEO, said, “Imubit’s goal is to transcend the industry beyond the decades-old process control and optimization software hierarchy. The current trend of integrating AI into existing tools might locally assist the user, but unfortunately does not create a step-change in operations. An entirely new approach is required. We started Imubit by inventing a scientifically novel type of Deep Reinforcement Learning. Today, we are solving previously unsolvable problems that are worth millions of dollars in the annual margin to our clients. One major operator has publicly shared a $10 million per year incremental margin improvement from the optimization of a complex refining system using our Closed-Loop Neural Network. Our domain expertise and client-centric approach have successfully positioned the company for profitability, stability, and responsible growth.”
Zeev Ventures led Imubit’s latest $30 million growth round alongside global ScaleUp investor Insight Partners, with participation from existing investors Spider Capital and UpWest. This investment brings the company’s total funding to $50 million.
Josh Fredberg, operating partner at Insight Partners, has joined the Imubit board of directors. Of Insight’s investment in Imubit, Fredberg said, “Insight focuses on exceptional category-creating companies that are scaling revolutionary technologies while transforming industries. Imubit has solved the extremely difficult business and technological challenges of how to optimize high-value refinery and chemical plant processes that were once considered too complex and is now scaling up this new technology. We look forward to supporting Imubit on its journey.”
Imubit is the leading provider of AI process optimization for refiners and chemical operators. The Imubit Closed-loop Neural Network Platform executes the plants’ money-making operational strategies continuously and consistently. Imubit’s platform interconnects various process units while aligning planning and economics, process engineering, process control and operations around the highest valued opportunities for closed-loop optimization.
