What about the faces of four veteran VCs who?ve see it all and then some?
If given two minutes to pitch your best pitch ever and then to withstand a sizzling interrogation from the judges, could you keep your cool and prevail against fourteen other teams and their machines?
Could you extract some oohs and aahs and a few cheers from a raucous audience that?s there to scrutinize your every move, your every winning moment, and unfortunately, your every fail?
Could you win out in the face of a room bursting its seams with boisterous RoboBusiness attendees, video cameras, news media and lots of investors curious to gauge value and potential from you and yours and the others, especially from the lone winner?
Win, lose or draw, you could get buttonholed by money people wanting to kick your tires and invite you over to the bar for a quiet chat. Or, make the acquaintance of big-time robot manufacturers who see synergy worthy of collaboration with your machine. Never can tell how things will roll.
