The new capital breaks down as £60 million in a Series C round led by Merian Global Investors, including Merian Chrysalis, with £15 million in follow-on funding from Starling’s existing backer and major shareholder Harald McPike.It brings total funding to date for the London-based challenger bank to £133 million.Meanwhile, breaking with tradition, Starling is formally disclosing its latest customer numbers, presumably now that it has hit a respectable number: the challenger bank now has 460,000 personal current accounts and 30,000 SME accounts, and says it expects to hit one million customers by the end of 2019.Of course, for any current account offering, perhaps a better metric is accounts where a regular salary is paid in.Starling is likely to be punching above its weight here, having launched with a fully fledged current account from the get-go and targeting a slightly broader demographic.On the SME banking front, a good point of reference is SME banking app Tide, which has been around for significantly longer than Starling’s much more recently launched business account.
Kirkby was thought to be one of the front-runners for the BT CEO job, following Gavin Patterson’s decision to spend more time with his yachts.But she took herself out of the running when her employer at the time of the executive search, Tele2, merged with Com Hem, and Kirkby took that opportunity to start a new gig at TDC.In the end BT went for former Worldpay boss Philip Jansen, who has plenty of experience at the top table, but not necessarily of an operator group.With that in mind it makes sense to get in some extra expertise in that area and it’s presumably safe to assume that TDC and BT have no competitive overlap.“Allison brings to the BT Board valuable and recent experience in the international telecommunications sector,” said BT Chairman Jan du Plessis.“This, combined with her strong experience in driving performance, improving customer service and delivering shareholder value, makes her an excellent addition to the Board.
Tesla opened a store on Amazon last week that sells branded merchandise like hats and diecast versions of Tesla vehicles.The move was a small gesture, but a smart one that illustrates the difference between Tesla's retail philosophy and those of its competitors, Gene Munster, a managing partner at Loup Ventures, told Business Insider.Opening the online store allows Tesla to benefit from the amount of traffic Amazon receives while making it easier for customers to engage with the automaker.Read more: Tesla's biggest non-Musk shareholder just cut its stake in half — but the stock is still soaringOpening the online store allows Tesla to benefit from the amount of traffic Amazon receives while making it easier for customers to engage with the automaker, he said."I'm surprised other car companies haven't done it," Munster said of Tesla's decision to create an Amazon store.

Vivendi wants Italian operator TIM to have a special meeting to choose new board members, but its auditors don’t agree.The request was originally made by Vivendi at the end of last year, in apparent response to Amos Genish but essentially a delayed reaction to it losing control of the TIM board to activist investor group Elliott earlier in the year.Elliott is understandably less keen on having such a meeting and Vivendi isn’t happy at what it perceives as breaches of corporate due process.In a somewhat convoluted and legalese press release TIM’s board of statutory auditors said it has been thinking about Vivendi’s request but it’s not convinced a special meeting before the scheduled AGM at the end of March is required.“This Board has evaluated the procedure that led the Company’s Board of Directors to call a Meeting of Shareholders for the coming 29 March, the agenda for which includes the same matters that Vivendi had asked be discussed separately,” said the PR.“Following that evaluation, and on the basis of the information available, in relation to the Board’s decision we consider that the conditions for the exercise of the powers to convene a specific meeting pursuant to Art.

Make no mistake, this is a multibillion-dollar opportunity for the home robotics specialist.For the past 17 years, millions of people around the world have grown accustomed to letting their Roomba robotic vacuums clean their homes.But at long last, this morning iRobot (NASDAQ:IRBT) unveiled a worthy outdoor counterpart to its flagship product line called Terra, its first-ever robotic lawn mower.In 2015, I noted iRobot singled out the global pushmower and robotic lawn mower industry as a $4.6 billion annual market opportunity.And even before then, the company piqued my interest months earlier when it asked the U.S. Federal Communications Commission for a waiver of certain rules prohibiting the unlicensed operation of certain fixed wideband wireless systems -- a request related to its effort to design a novel wireless beacon system for navigation.Sure enough, today iRobot confirmed that -- in contrast to the cumbersome buried boundary wires required by other robotic lawn mowers today -- Terra uses a "newly developed wireless communications system, including stand-alone beacons," to autonomously navigate any given lawn.

Pittsburg-based Argo.ai, a driverless vehicle startup founded by former executives on self-driving teams at Google and Uber, has obtained a permit to test its autonomous cars on California roads.The approval, which was issued by the California Department of Motor Vehicles, was first spotted by TechCrunch and confirmed by a spokesperson to VentureBeat.Argo has a close relationship with Ford, which in February 2017 said it would invest $1 billion in the startup over the next five years in to help it achieve its goal of producing a self-driving vehicle fleet by 2021.It made Ford the company’s largest shareholder, and enabled Argo to hire 200 additional employees — many of whom were Ford employees working in the R department on a virtual driver system.“With Argo AI’s agility and Ford’s scale we’re combining the benefits of a technology start up with the experience and discipline we have at Ford,” Fields said when the news was announced.Argo is currently piloting its autonomous systems in Miami and Detroit, with plans to expand tests to Washington, D.C. in the coming months.
