ROBOT Launch Pad
A robot startup community ~ growing robots one startup at a time.

Robot teams wanted for the Google Developers Group HACKATHON – send us your idea for an android/robot hack and win free tickets to the Google I/O afterhack on Saturday June 30 and Sunday July 1. Plus you can join the pitch event on Thursday night right in the middle of Google I/O. Not only are we giving away free tickets, but Elad Inbar will be running a code lab for android (and other) robot apps.

Register for Google I/O afterhack here.

OR apply for free tickets by entering a team/idea here.

Finally, we want to feature your startup on the new (coming soon) Robot Launchpad website. Email me OR here’s a form to fill in! (Thanks Saurabh for taking time to create it!)

The second part of the form helps us find out how many people would like Robot Launchpad to provide workspace or other facilities. If you ask for it, we might get it. We’re kind of magic that way.

Crowdfunding: Disrupting Traditional Funding Models
Tuesday June 19 | 6pm | Stanford University

Now that the JOBS Act lets startups exchange Equity-for-Cash up to $1M per year, implementation will prove interesting. Crowdfunding has vined its way through informal social networking sites, and these continue to fuel the rapid growth of this new economic engine. Will crowdfunding consume or complement existing capitalist models?
