Fundraising in video surveillance (and the broader physical security market) has been poor recently. Highlights are few and far in between including Knightscope raising $20 million from mom n' pop investors and Dahua's car manufacturer raising $63 million.

IPVM spoke with Verkada about:
- Current State of the Company
- Plans for The New Funding
- Disrupting Traditional Security Markets
- 3rd Party Camera Support
- Competitive Challenges
