“Magic Lane provides ready-made and fully customizable maps, navigation, and driver-assistance software tailored for businesses to integrate into apps, online platforms, devices, and vehicles. With their global approach and sales extending from the Netherlands to India, we are excited about this one,” No Such Venture team commented on Linkedin.
