Robot Launch 2014 is open to any robot startup pre/partial Series A. We’re looking for startups with prototypes and business models. But we’re also interested in any great robot startup idea.
What is a robot startup? Well, it could be a robot or an autonomous mobile manipulator. OR it could be an appliance or connected device. OR it could be a sensor or actuator or AI that makes robots better.
