MassRobotics is an independent, non-profit organization that serves as the innovation hub for robotics and connected devices. Thru programming and events, MassRobotics helps create a vibrant ecosystem by bringing together startups, existing technology organizations, universities, investors, public officials and service providers to nurture the next generation of talent and promote economic growth and innovation.

Since opening its shared workspace facility in February of 2017, MassRobotics has attracted over thirty companies to locate here. In our space companies receive amenities such as Wi-Fi, printers and a stocked kitchen, as well as shared resources including lab equipment, software licenses, 3D printers and access to robotic platforms that are usually not affordable startups. MassRobotics also provide connections thru events and networking including funding resources, legal expertise, product development and manufacturing, to help ensure scaling and success.
