Velocity Robotics was selected as a Pittsburgh Regional Finalist for the AlphaLab Gear National Hardware Cup. The Hardware Cup is the first nation-wide pitch competition focused exclusively on early-stage hardware startups. The Hardware Cup Team will travel to 9 cities to highlight and create exposure for Hardware Founders, and their products.
The Pittsburgh regional competition was held Wednesday, January 20th, 2016. We had a great time, got to meet some other great founders and all sorts of folks in the startup scene here in Pittsburgh. Plus, we got some great feedback on our product and business model from folks who've been down this road before. Score!
So, we'd like to shout out a big 'thanks' to AlphaLab Gear, Startbot, Innovation Works, The Tech Shop, and all of the founders and VCs who donated their time, space, expertise, and money to help promote us and the other hardware startups in the region!
