Hit by the Pandemic, Sunflower Labs was on the verge of going out of business, however, the company pivoted from its original residential focus to commercial / industrial, saying it now has great interest and has raised $15 million in Series A funding.

Originally, Sunflower Labs focused on residential as we covered them in 2018.
