Ever wondered what’s behind our 4G or wifi connectivity? What if it were a network of shoebox-sized devices beaming lasers to one another?
Well, that’s what Singapore-based startup Transcelestial does to bring superfast connectivity to the masses. The company also recently bagged US$10 million in its Series A2 funding led by Airbus Ventures.
Other investors including Cap Vista – which is the strategic investment arm of Singapore’s Defence Science and Technology Agency – have participated as well.
Transcelestial has said then that the funds will be used to ramp up growth in Indonesia, India, the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore. But to what extent is the company on track to achieve that?
The company is also planning to enter the US market soon, but what can we expect on that front?
On Money FM’s ‘Under the Radar’, finance presenter Chua Tian Tian sat down with our CEO and Co-founder, Rohit Jha to discuss lasers, superfast connectivity and capital investments.
