The Robotics field is a long-standing branch of advanced technology here in Massachusetts. However, it has only recently evolved into a self-aware "cluster", engaging and drawing on the expertise of a noisy crowd of start-ups, research labs, and established enterprises. From diverse technological roots, Robotics today supports a wide range of industries and is embedded in a wide range of applications.
As ever, the EntreTech forum focuses on advanced research emerging from our leading universities and the entrepreneurs and visionaries who are developing the commercial potential of this research.

About The EntreTech Forum
The EntreTech Forum consists of moderated monthly panel discussions on emerging academic research and the commercialization of this technology. It was designed for those interested in technology innovation and marketing collaboration and networking with fellow entrepreneurs, business and government executives, investors, and technology researchers.
The technology-innovation presentations feature entrepreneurial and corporate accomplishments along commercialization pathways with discussions of tech transfer and technology incubation and research from universities, industry and government. The multi-disciplinary subjects of raising and utilizing different forms of capital, building alliances and structuring deals are included as part of the programming, and serve as tools for the entrepreneur and researcher to commercialize science and technology.
