Startup Support

 This one day bootcamp California is focused on robotics startups with mentors who are experienced in robotics investment and robotics manufacturing.


We'll cover the basics of the IEEE Deep Tech Business and Manufacturing Checklists, then break into one on one Q&A and mentoring sessions. We're focused on helping you speed past your potential startup roadblocks. These Checklists will be available online in 2024, but come back here for more in person bootcamps, both at IEEE conferences and separately.


This bootcamp is being held in person is hosted by Silicon Valley Robotics, Circuit Launch and the IEEE RAS SCV/OEB/SF Jt. Section Chapter and IEEE Entrepreneurship.


 IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Clearinghouse


The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society recognizes that many robotics and automation professionals and researchers may be displaced due to recent world events. Many are looking for ways to assist Ukrainian colleagues and the Ukrainian people. One of the best ways to do this is through personal contributions to international charitable relief organizations that are providing assistance to refugees of the Ukrainian conflict.

 IEEE RAS asks that if you, your company or institution has created pathways for war-affected robotics professionals, IEEE RAS will collect and share these pathways with the robotics community via the clearinghouse list below.
