A Cross-border Exit Leads to Success for Go Beyond Investors

Go Beyond is pleased to announce that OtoSense, an artificial intelligence company that uses sound recognition software to turn sounds into actionable meaning, has been acquired by Analog Devices. OtoSense, based in Palo Alto, California, provided significant returns to Go Beyond investors from both Europe and the US, especially since the initial investment was made only 3 years ago.

OtoSense started by building a sound recognition library for the hard of hearing, then pivoted into homeland security using their software to distinguish sounds in cities where gun shots or riots could threaten large populations. The company began its accelerated growth when it focused on manufacturing using its machine learning software and artificial intelligence to identify when machines needed repairs based on sound recognition. The enterprise software company’s unique technology is an example of the range of new solutions emerging in the marketplace.

This investment is an example of how cross-border investing can benefit angel investors. Go Beyond brought together investors from Switzerland, Belgium, England, France and the United States to invest in OtoSense. As one of the few angel investing companies which offer cross-border investing, Go Beyond is poised to take advantage of the many cross-border opportunities which are emerging globally.
