Event Details

Why It Is Hard To Get Robotics Startups Funded
Rodney Brooks, Rethink Robotics

Academics who want to start a robotics company have to adjust to a different set of metrics on what makes a good robot. VCs who are asked to fund robotics companies have a hard time evaluating what is hard and what is easy to achieve in the presented plans. Both groups have difficulty predicting whether the market will be responsive to a radically new solution. This talk lays out the issues and ways to think about all three problems. It is an optimistic look at the future of robotic start ups.

Talk at 5:00pm
Dinner and reception at 6:30pm
