First Online Global Robotics Start Up Competition Begins

Out of the academic closet and into the real world of competing just like the rest of the entrepreneurs out there, Robotics finally gets its day in the mainstream spotlight with the first global robotic start up competition.

Silicon Valley Robotics and Robohub have created  the first online robot startup competition, called Robot Launch 2014.  Robot Launch 2014 will run online at robot.istart.org  from Feb 20 till May 20.

All of the startups who enter will have publicly searchable online summaries and the Top 30 will be showcased on Robohub. The finals will be conducted live online and the top three startups will be showcased at O’Reilly’s new hardware/software conference Solid.

“Our goal is to grow the robotics ecosystem and all the awards we’re offering are exactly what a robot startup needs to accelerate their growth. Robotics is entering an exciting period of rapid growth,” said Keay. “These days there are a lot of tools available to help you iterate from prototype to product very quickly. It’s time for software to move over, the future is robotics.”

So what do these new order robot start ups win?  Personal VC interviews and mentoring, industrial design reviews, free startup legal services and lean startup coaching.  Catagories include People’s Choice, Crowd Pleaser, Best European Startup and Best Lean Startup. The list of companies that has partnered with Robot Launch 2014 continues to grow and includes Grishin Robotics , Indiegogo , WilmerHale, Robert Bosch Venture Capital , Lemnos Labs , Luxr, and Robolution Capital.
