Dryad Networks raises €1.8 million for wildfire sensors



ImpactAlpha, October 13 – This year’s California wildfire season is the worst on record. Australia’s fires early in the year devastated New South Wales and Victoria.

Berlin-based Dryad’s networks of connected sensors aim to provide early wildfire detection of wildfires. The company has tested its “multi-hop mesh networks,” which can cover forests even without mobile connectivity, in forested areas in Germany.

Dryad’s €1.8 million ($2.1 million) seed financing was backed by STIHL Group’s corporate venture arm, German energy firm LEAG, impact investor ISAR AG and Brandenburg Kapital.
