ADD a roomful of enthusiastic entrepreneurs

in search of a WINNING startup idea!

The ROBOT launchpad connects startup and robotics communities. We take the successful startup weekend and boot camp model to launch existing hardware (robots) into new business ideas. As robotics technology becomes more affordable and widespread, the search is on for the next generation of robot businesses – robots that fulfil consumer or small to medium size enterprise needs.

The robots are ready. Are you?

One Robot

Each ‘robot launchpad’ uses a real robot ready for new business models. It’s not about building robots, it’s about building businesses around them.

One Weekend

We know you’re busy. But you can pull amazing startup ideas together in 48 hours and still have a blast!

Roomful of Entrepreneurs

Are you business focussed but love robots? Are you a robot geek who wants to learn how startups work? Or are you a developer or designer from the areas of mobile devices, software, web and internet technologies looking for new horizons? We also welcome applications from people with domain knowledge in areas that could benefit from robots (eg. health). We expect strong demand for spaces so there will be an application process.

Winning Startup Idea

One robot, one weekend and a roomful of entrepreneurs – at the end, you make your pitch to industry judges from robotics, startup, investor and venture capital communities.
