Grishin Robotics to Fund Robotic Future
Robotics used in home maintenance, education, healthcare, entertainment and transportation has just been given a boost by Dmitry Grishin, the cofounder of Russia's internet company Mail.ru. He believes that the current state of the industry is where computers were in the early 80's and has formed Grishin Robotics to encourage the science with a $25 million fund.
With headquarters in New York but funding available internationally, Grishin is planning to donate $500,000 to 10 - 20 companies per year to those with feasible ideas, so devise a business plan and other information to illustrate your project and maybe you can build your own Rosie Robot!
