Seaver, which designs connected objects for equestrian sports, raises 1.5 million euros from Peiker Consumer Electronics Evolution GmbH. The startup had already raised 2 million euros in 2018.
Launched in 2016 by Zakaria Antar and Pierre-Yves Lalo, Seaver is developing a connected strap to measure horse performance and health at work. The Norman startup offers to view data on the horse in real time, ranging from its heart rate to the number of calories burned through its speed, via a mobile application.
A new generation of connected objects
On the market, other French players are trying to digitize the horse riding sector, like the Lille startup Equisense, which developed a connected sensor to measure the performance of horses and raised 3 million euros in 2016.
As part of this fundraising, Seaver aims to launch a second generation of connected objects, inspired by user feedback and designed to adapt to the daily life of riders. The Normandy startup plans in particular to develop an ECG to detect heart problems and transmit the data to a veterinarian, as well as a fitness test.
