Invest in Innovation



Calling Robotics Start-ups: Apply to Compete for Publicity and Possible Venture Capital

Fostering technical innovation is a key fundamental for Robotics Alley Conference & Expo. In that spirit, this year’s event will feature our second annual “Invest in Innovation” competition, which offers a chance for tech start-ups to pitch their business plans to a panel of judges, gaining publicity and the possibility to secure investment capital.

Qualified applicants should ideally work in robotics, sensors or advanced manufacturing. Robotics Alley staff will narrow submissions to the three finalists who will compete before the judges panel. The top 10 finalists will receive free conference passes.

The three entrepreneur-contestants selected as finalists will make their pitches to the judges during the conference in a live public session open to Robotics Alley attendees. Each presenter group will have 10-12 minutes to make their opening pitch, followed by a 15-minute Q&A session with judges and the audience.
