Hyperplane portfolio companies Dexai Robotics, Soft Robotics, and Pickle Robot Co. together are top contributors to Boston’s leading robotics ecosystem. Our robotics event brought together technologists and interested stakeholders to talk about the challenges and advantages of operating in one of the most exciting industries on the leading edge of new automation capabilities. Dexai Robotics is the inventor of Alfred, the robotic sous chef, aiming to reinvent automation in the restaurant industry. Co-founders Anthony and Dave, both of whom are familiar with the process required for optimizing hardware and software for robotics applications, spoke to the challenges startups face while navigating new market potential. Pickle Robot Co. and Soft Robotics have developed robotic solutions for supply chains, albeit very different technologies. In bringing together a diverse set of founders and industry leaders, plenty of great insights were shared amongst the attendees.
