We are excited to post our first blog as we launch the MassRobotics web site!

Over a year and a half has passed since the co-founders first discussed the concept of a robotics innovation hub based in Boston, MA. Since that time, the team has been hard at work crafting a powerful mission and taking the necessary steps to bring the concept to life. Through these efforts, and with the help of a stellar board of directors, we anticipate the continued successes and growth of MassRobotics.

We would like to recognize and thank our board members for their support and participation:
