Inspectorio is a private technology company headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The company was founded in July 2016 by Carlos Moncayo, David Klein, Fernando Moncayo, and Luis Moncayo. Originally based in Hong Kong, the company moved its headquarters to Minneapolis after participating in the Target + Techstars accelerator program.
Following a successful Series A funding round in July 2018, Inspectorio’s investors include leading venture capital investors, Techstars, and Fortune 500 companies. Inspectorio sells technology for supply chain inspections and compliance.
Carlos Moncayo, Fernando Moncayo, and Luis Moncayo founded ASIAM Business Group in 2003, where they first worked on the supply chain industry. ASIAM Business Group aims to bridge the commerce gap between Asia and Latin America by facilitating trade and quality inspections.
During their time at ASIAM Business Group, Inspectorio’s founders experienced the challenges of traditional inspection methods in the global supply chain, an industry that relied on manual processes for quality inspections. In 2016, Inspectorio was founded with the vision of bringing technology and transparency to the supply chain industry by digitizing inspection processes and facilitating the sharing of information between key stakeholders.
Inspectorio “was part of the first class of 10 start-ups in a retail-focused boot camp that Target hosted […] in partnership with Boulder, Colo.-based Techstars, which runs similar accelerators around the world.” After the program, Inspectorio moved its headquarters to Minneapolis, Minnesota. In January 2017, Inspectorio received $3.7 million in a seed funding round led by Target.
In 2018 Inspectorio received $10 million in a Series A funding round.
Now, Inspectorio offers technology solutions for both quality and compliance, and serves to small and large retailers, vendors, and factories.
