“RFID technology is not new, but the Talkin ‘Things team can approach it extremely innovatively. This unique specialization, combined with a market that has matured for mass tag applications, makes us believe in the success of this project,”

Tomasz Domogała owner of TDJ comments on the investment.
  • TDJ is a Polish private investment firm that has been operating since 1977. The existing investor Montis Capital supported the current round. The fund led the startup’s $9.6M seed round in 2019.
