At RoboBusiness, five robotics startup companies will deliver 5 minute pitches to compete for a cash prize and invaluable feedback from industry investors.
The industry’s hottest robotics startups compete in Pitchfire for a $5,000 first-place prize and eternal bragging rights.
Five startups deliver 5-minute ‘pitches’ to a panel of judges describing their solution, business model, value proposition and more. Judges pick a winner and two runners-up based on the startup they believe to be best primed for commercial success.

Congratulations to Tatum Robotics, winner of Pitchfire 2022. Led by Samantha Johnson, Tatum Robotics has created a 3D-printed robotic hand that aims to help DeafBlind people communicate, soon to be followed by a complete robotic arm for complex signing. A DeafBlind person uses Tatum’s robot by placing their hand over the robotic hand, which currently fingerspells using the American Sign Language manual alphabet.
The pioneering event of the global robotics industry, & the one event for the entire robotics ecosystem.
