Prior to the formation of Silicon Valley Robotics, the cluster was very loosely organized in comparison with the more formal robotics clusters found in Pittsburgh, Boston, and Odense, Denmark.
This year, non-profi t organization Silicon Valley Robotics (SVR), is celebrating a decade of successfully accelerating robotics outreach, innovation, and commercialization. SVR, in cooperation with its member companies and partner universities, organizes networking, startup, and investment events on a regular basis. The group also produces industry reports and hosts job fairs. In addition, SVR supports additional robotics affiliates including international business development groups, other robotics clusters, media and event producers (such as Robotics Business Review), and others.
