This is your invitation!
I've tweaked the eventbrite 'privacy' settings so that ALL links and invitations now work.
(We weren't trying to stop anyone from registering, I'm still learning eventbrite's security settings. The plus is that now all the links work and you can invite friends who share your passion for robot startups, as long as spaces last.)
The Robot Retreat ~ Rethinking Robot Startups
Our mission is to bring together creative and innovative people from every community with just one focus: ROBOTS. We're getting involved in a lot of great events, spanning startup culture, hacking and making, robot research and design, all leading to one question - what is a world full of robots like?
The Robot Retreat will be held at blackbox mansions April 28-29. A small group of movers and thinkers in the space of robotics, startups, design and culture will come together for a weekend of provocative thought, with workshops, networking and great people. What will the next robots do? Who will use them? How does startup methodology apply to robotics?
We're also kicking the retreat off with an awesome party on Friday night at a secret location. Guest speakers will be Bob Christopher of Ugobe and Pleo, and Steven Humphreys of Upstart Mobile and Giraff
The event is 'private' and will be kept small to facilitate discussion and workshopping. We expect everyone to have the opportunity to develop a robot business proposal over the course of the weekend. You can forward this invite to people who you believe share your passion for creating new robot business models. Our invitees come from a cross section of robotics and related technologies, with wide ranging business and domain expertise, and many robot startups already under the belt.
The retreat will be $60 for the weekend, including food and the friday night party. Also, accommodation can be booked at blackbox
for $65 per person but space is limited. Mention that you're attending the Robot Retreat!
