Lab Fellows CEO Julio de Unamuno IV - Enabling Research by Reducing Equipment Downtime

Lab Fellows CEO Julio de Unamuno IV – Enabling Research by Reducing Equipment Downtime

In an industrial environment, machine downtime is a big deal. Keeping machines humming for longer means greater production and maximized use of the asset. Managers understand this, entrepreneurs understand this, but it’s possible that researchers do not. Admittedly, their work is not always geared directly toward profit, and the researchers themselves were usually not the actual investors in the actual equipment, but the overlap from research to industry is still a large one.

One of my favorite topics for the entrepreneurs we bring on at Emerj is "opportunity."

The nature of a startup is to think big, and the nature of a startup founder is to be thinking about those "10x" possibilities and avenues to get their business to the next level.

Robots at Home – Interview with Assistobot CEO Tjin Van Der Zant

Tjin Van Der Zant helped found "Robocup at Home" in 2006, and since then the organization has spread to include a number of new locations everywhere from Brazil to Thailand.
