Founding Sponsors Blog photo

From its inception MassRobotics has enjoyed a strong and solid support, not only from the robotics startup community and academic community, but also from the corporate and investment communities.

Our team believes that a successful startup community needs a strong engagement with other established companies and organizations. These companies could serve as suppliers of critical sensors and actuation components or design and CAD software programs. In addition, they could be users of the automation and AI technologies that our startups are working on or they could be interested investors that believe in the significant returns that will result from our resident startups.

As we have had the privilege to get the official support from almost 100 companies, venture capital firms, government officials and academic institutions, we decided early this year to offer a small number of our supporters to become life-time founding sponsors of MassRobotics. We were thrilled with the significant interest of many of our supporters to commit funds and resources to contribute to the establishment of MassRobotics world-class facility.

We would like to use this opportunity to thank our 12 founding sponsors; Amazon Robotics, Arrow, Autodesk, Brain Robotics Capital, CIC, Cirtronics, Deshpande Foundation, Harmonic Drive, Industrial Development Agency Ireland, iRobot, Solidworks and Vecna.  We would also like to thank the in-kind services and support from Draper, EMA Boston, Foley Hoag, MassDevelopment, MassTLC, and Newmark Grubb Knight Frank.

In addition to our 12 founding sponsors, we have been working with other companies to establish annual sponsorship and partnership agreements with various value-add benefits, and services.
