MassRobotics has been collaborating with partner Mitsubishi Electric for over a year to help support MELCO’s vision for the Factory of the Future and to help identify startups to fill their portfolio gaps. This collaboration resulted in the Mitsubishi Electric Startup Engagement Program which kicked off with an event at MassRobotics last week. The event was attended by a large contingent from the many divisions within Mitsubishi Electric, as well as the robotic and AI innovation ecosystem.
Through the Startup Engagement Program, Mitsubishi Electric is looking to develop Proof of Concepts (PoCs) and potential investment opportunities, similar to the relationship they have with Realtime Robotics, a MassRobotics startup alum. Mitsubishi Electric is seeking start-up companies that will find creative solutions and innovative technology to enhance its Factory Automation portfolio. The timeline for this program is shown below and the application link is here.
Up to 10 companies will be selected to participate in collaboration with MELCO and a few will be down selected for an opportunity to visit Mitsubishi Electric in Japan in June 2020.
