BurnBot Raises $20M to Revolutionize Wildfire Prevention with Mechanized Solutions

In a significant move towards combating destructive wildfires, BurnBot, Inc. has announced the close of a successful Series A funding round, securing $20 million in financing to expand its mechanized vegetation management and fuel treatment solutions. Led by ReGen Ventures, with participation from several prominent investors, this funding will propel BurnBot’s mission to revolutionize wildfire prevention through innovative technology.

At the heart of BurnBot’s innovation is the RX, a mechanized prescribed fire system designed to amplify prescribed fire capacity while minimizing risk. This technology enables small crews to treat areas ten times faster and more efficiently, even near communities and critical infrastructure, making it safe for year-round use.

Partnering with organizations like CAL FIRE, BurnBot’s technology has already made significant strides in wildfire prevention across California and Oregon. From precisely deploying prescribed fire under high-voltage transmission lines to clearing hazardous brush around evacuation routes, BurnBot’s solutions have proven instrumental in mitigating wildfire risks.
