Robotics innovations have been escalating over the past decade – in all areas including autonomy and automation, grasping, computer vision, AI and more. New England has proven to be THE HUB for these innovations, as well as for commercialization and scaling.

Sitting within that hub is the New England Venture Capital Association (NEVCA), working on behalf of New England’s VC industry and celebrating the region’s collective achievements every year at The Annual NEVY Awards. The NEVYs unite the Tech, Healthcare, and Life Science communities across New England’s world-class innovation ecosystem for a grand celebration at the House of Blues. For the 11th year, the NEVYs are creating special focus on the robotics community through a community effort with MassRobotics.

At The 2022 NEVYs tenth anniversary, the inaugural New England Robotics Company of the year was awarded to Righthand Robotics. This category looks at breakthrough technology, economic impact and success to include: funding, growth, deployment and revenue, and milestones reached. This year we are asking the community for your help by asking you to nominate worthy companies. Companies at any stage are eligible who are located in New England and have executed a milestone from November 2022-September 2023. 

To nominate a 2023 NEVY robotics company of the year, please fill out this Google form HERE

Nominations close on October 3rd. Finalists will be announced in late October and, the awards celebration will take place on December 7th.
