The market value of the American robotic company Nuro reached $2 billion 700 million due to the fact that the startup was able to attract investments of the Japanese corporation SoftBank Group in the amount of $940 million. For this purpose, the Japanese corporation used the funds of its Vision Fund, which are mainly intended for the purchase of stakes of fast-growing technology companies. Representatives of the startup, created in 2016, have signed an agreement with the US supermarket chain Kroger, which provides for the use of the Nuro self-propelled car for the delivery of goods sold in supermarkets. This allowed Kroger to expand its range of services.
