SourcingBot develops software that optimizes the purchasing of electric components for manufacturing. Powered by a machine learning algorithm, the software helps find replacement parts and reduce risks inherent in manufacturing electronics.

 

“We want to make the sourcing of parts more efficient and to become a source of information for entities in the world of electronic manufacturing,” Mr. Oren said. “We focus on optimizing the communication between vendors and their customers.” 

 

Mr. Oren said the funding will allow his startup to keep running for two years.

 

SourcingBot is also the recipient of a 150,000 euro grant ($178,000) from EXIST Start-Up Germany, a government-funded program that is meant to draw startups to Berlin and Munich.
The growing startup scene in Berlin is thirsty for talent, especially in the field of manufacturing automation. Germany, in partnership with the country’s leading companies, including Siemens and German automakers, invests heavily in promoting technological development to help maintain German manufacturing dominance.
