Seattle startup Minnow is hoping to capture some of the increased demand for contactless technologies as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 3-year-old company just raised a $2.2 million seed round led by Portland, Ore.-based Elevate Capital. Portland Seed Fund and LPC Ventures, the VC arm of Lincoln Property Company, also invested. Total funding to date is $3.4 million. Minnow makes IoT-enabled food pickup stations called pods which are installed in restaurants, cafeterias, food halls, office buildings, apartments, and more. It works with restaurant partners that supply the food.
