Valery-Komissarova-on-Robots-in-Depth---YouTubeRobots in Depth is a new video series featuring interviews with researchers, entrepreneurs, VC investors, and policy makers in robotics, hosted by Per Sjöborg. In this interview, Valery Komissarova — Business Development Director at Grishin Robotics — talks about her work at an investment company focused on consumer robotics.

Komissarova describes why the timing for starting Grishin Robotics was just right, and shares some of the initial feedback from different parts of the robotics community.

She also talks about differences between the companies that get funded and the ones that that don’t, what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur in robotics, and the areas within consumer robotics where we are likely to see strong development in the next few years.
