Fall 2022 GRASP SFI: Charlie Andersen and Terry Scott, Burro, “Founders’ journey of building a robotics company in Philadelphia”
October 26, 2022 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
This is a hybrid event with in-person attendance in Levine 307 and virtual attendance via Zoom.
Charlie Andersen (CEO) and Terry Scott (CTO) are two of the founders of Burro. They share their origin story of Burro and we follow their journey of building a robotics company and a product intended to bring new life into an ancient industry. Off a small launchpad of accelerator funding and Charlie’s personal savings, they build their proof of concept utility robot and target specific sectors within agriculture to garner interest and investment. With the closure of a seed round, they embarked on turning that proof-of-concept into a functional prototype. They will share how the company, product and technology has evolved from 4 people and an idea to a company with 33 members and growing, with one of the largest deployed operational robotic fleets within agricultural robotics.
