Cody Y. C. Chang, President, Chairman, & CEO For three decades, Aurotek upholds its reputation and work spirit for sharing high-tech industry experiences, delivering high value-added services and solutions, and helping customers achieve greater value through its introduction of advanced and quality components, acquirement of new technology concepts, and constant pursuit of excellence in industrial design.
Universal Robots
Esben Østergaard CTO & Co-Founder Universal Robots produce a robotic arm which is characterized by being extremely flexible and easy to use in the day-to-day production. It differs from anything else in the market in the sense that it is lightweight, very easy to re-program for any non-robot expert and can be easily moved around in the production facilities. This enables the possibilities for small and medium sized companies to implement robots into the production, even though they do not posses the robot expertise inside the company. 
Liquid robotics
Gary Gysin, President & CEO Liquid Robotics designs and manufactures Wave Gliders®, the first wave and solar powered autonomous ocean robots. With its partners the comoany addresses many of the planet’s greatest challenges, by transforming how to assess, monitor, and protect the ocean. It solves critical problems for defense, commercial, and science customers. 
Penguin Automated Systems Inc
Dr. Greg Baiden
Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Penguin Automated Systems Inc. (ASI) is a leading research, development and prototyping company providing professional and comprehensive robotic and automation solutions for underground, underwater, in-space and on-surface applications. Daily operations focus on expanding and inventing new technologies in order to provide its clients with the most advanced and impressive products on the market. The combination of Penguin ASI’s expert knowledge and skilled resources maximizes efficiencies and provides cost-effective solutions. 
Rethink robotics
Scott Eckert President & CEO Rethink Robotics is a new kind of robotics company, and our mission is to create a new kind of manufacturing robot. One that introduces robotics into processes that manufacturers have never been able to cost-effectively automate. One that uses common sense to perform a wide range of tasks and vastly improve productivity. And one that safely works side by side with its human counterparts, who are able to train it with no programming or engineering expertise.
Graeme Smith, CEO Oxbotica, a leading autonomous software company based in Oxford, is bringing self-driving technology to the roads, ports, mines, roads, forests, quarries of the world (and even to Mars!). Its autonomous operating system, Selenium, is platform agnostic and navigates autonomously around cities, warehouses and off-road environments, using data from lasers and cameras placed on vehicles. Originally founded in 2014 as a spin-out of Oxford University's Oxford Robotics Institute, Oxbotica helps its clients integrate over 200 man years'​ worth of work in autonomy into their own products.
Soft Robotics
Carl Vause, CEO Soft Robotics designs and builds soft robotic gripping systems and automation solutions that can grasp and manipulate items of varying size, shape and weight.
Joshua Hoffman, CEO Founded in 2013 and based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Zymergen integrates automation, machine learning, and genomics to rapidly accelerate the pace of scientific advancement. We treat the genome as a search space, leveraging machine learning to make discoveries far beyond the bounds of human intuition. In doing so, we deliver economic value, material diversity and performance capabilities not previously possible.
