In this episode of Robots in Depth, Per Sjöborg speaks with Ian Bernstein, the founder of several robotics companies including Sphero. He shares his experience from completing 5 successful rounds of financing, raising 17 million dollars in the 5th one.
Ian also talks about building a world-wide distribution network and the complexity of combining software and hardware development. We then discuss what is happening in robotics and where future successes may come from, including the importance of Kickstarter and Indiegogo.
