May 11, 2022: Biofire raises $17m and emerges from stealth

an update from our ceo, kai kloepfer

I’m excited to share that Biofire is emerging from three years in stealth mode, with Axios Pro Rata and TechCrunch helping us announce that we’ve raised over $17 million in seed funding to bring our Smart Gun to market - the largest private investment in a firearm technology startup in history.

Biofire is the first to build a smart handgun from the ground up with fully integrated, instantly unlocking, state-of-the-art biometrics. Our Smart Gun instantly unlocks for users authorized by its owner, but remains locked for all others, including children.
