What we look for
We have shown operative excellence and resilience – creating improbable results with extremely limited resources. After de-risking the tech, the business model and user acceptance, we’re now at a pivotal stage to really bring this technology to mass market. For this we need network, experience and a lot of resources to execute on our bold plans. That’s why we’re looking for exceptional business angels / microVC / impact funds who want to scale the robody® technology with us.
The business super angels to grow the largest global robotics company with us, eventually improving the lives of billions, therefore need to:
- Jump fully into this opportunity. This won’t be just a side hustle. We want to occupy their minds – because of the importance and once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity we are convinced this is, we need their focus. (We understand, everyone is busy, we don’t want them to hold our hands, but to be the first thing they think about in the morning, and the last before going to bed – to get those critical ideas and insights.)
- Come with us to the trenches – we’re not interested in textbook advice, we’ve read the books, but situation aware operative knowhow and foresight.
- Think along with us. We plan on doing something hard, we know our limits, so we’re ready to listen to and learn from those who’ve accomplished exceptional things before.
- Bring along their network. We need all those exceptional talents they’ve met during the last decades.
- Subscribe to our vision and become a beacon for our technology in their circles, pulling in everyone they talk to about it.
- Be hungry and ambitious – seeing the freedom previous successes created as a necessary stepping stone to invest in us.
- Have skin in the game – and invest a non-trivial amount.
What they’ll get out of this
- Global impact beyond just financial gains
- Been part of a business that changes lives for the better
- Been part of a revolution before everyone knew it would be one
- Co-formed a brand that will be known for centuries to come
- A defendable, scalable investment based on clear customer needs and excellent ROI
What we’ll do together
- Build and scale teleoperated robotic bodies to be used in home care contexts as a 24/7h available help, bringing peace of mind to relatives that their loved ones are in good hands, connecting the elderlies to the (digital) world, reducing their isolation, making their lives simpler and more active – allowing them to age at home longer and preventing them from having to go to a care home.
- field: deep tech robotics x care Munich based
- technology: robodies platform – remote robotic bodies – like Zoom but tangible and a software platform to easily connect from anywhere
- prior: 8 years of research, successfully sold robots to labs & paid pilots with corporates (>600k€ revenue to date, >800k€ in grants)
- now: commercialising at scale with entry through premium elderly care
- status: bootstrapped PoC working, several pilots completed and in the pipeline, preparing for a longer pilot with Charité Berlin & Diakoniezentrum Pirmasens
- roadmap: 5 pilots by 2024, 100 active customers by 2026, care insurance coverage by 2028
- looking to complete our team & board with business angels that fit the criteria in the table below.
- aspiration: make robody® a common name, like post-it, zoom or jeep.
- execution: we have a plan, excellent unit economics and a robust, resilient path to fast (for a hardware company) returns, growth and scalability.
