what they say

The 2014 CMU Launch event was a great event for us. We were able to connect with prospective investors, many of which were from outside the region. In addition, it was inspiring to interact with other Founders and see the breadth of innovation being driven by students and alumni of CMU.

-Jim Ruiz, Founder and CEO, CDL Warrior, Developed by Next Gauge, Inc.

Launch CMU gave us the right platform to find investors. By branding the event as Roboburgh, it attracted people that understand how much robotics companies can be profitable. That allowed us to find truly motivated investors. I approve this message for posting.

-Tom Galluzzo, CEO, IAM Robotics
