Robot Retreat ~ Rethinking Robot Startups

The Robot Retreat hosted by the RobotLaunchPad will be held at blackbox mansions April 28-29. A small group of movers and thinkers in the space of robotics, startups, design and culture come together for a weekend of provocative thought, with workshops, networking and great people. What will the next robots do? Who will use them? How does startup methodology apply to robotics? How about repurposing existing robots with new business models?

We’re also kicking it off with an awesome secret party on Friday night. We’d tell you more but… it’s still a secret. Invitations will go out on March 15. Keep the weekend free! Please ASK US for an invitation by sending a brief blurb/intro.
