ISSUE – Mar. 01 | Aurora raises $90M Series A, adds Reid Hoffman and Mike Volpi to its board

Self-driving car startup Aurora has raised $90 million in a Series A round, with participation from both Greylock Partners and Index Ventures. The new funding adds to its available cash and will make it possible for the young startup to scale more quickly, but Aurora CEO Chris Urmson told me that the most important part of this deal from his perspective is that Aurora gets two, high-profile new board members out of the deal. [ Tech Crunch ]
