Are you a founder of a robotics startup? The 2023 RoboBusiness Pitchfire start-up pitch competition is officially open for applications to this year’s event.
This is a unique opportunity to showcase your groundbreaking ideas and propel your company to new heights. RoboBusiness is the premier networking event in the robotics industry and the Pitchfire competition is a great way to get the attention that will help you build new partnerships and secure new funding sources.
