Brad is advancing to nationals in the Hardware Cup pitch competition!
The Hardware Cup is a pitch competition for early-stage hardware startups, and Brad Kriel of Velocity Robotics is one of six US regional winners. Those regional winners, as well as the international winners, are competing to win the $50,000 grand prize, in the form of a convertible-debt investment by Startbot VC.
On this week’s show, Brad tells Scot MacTaggart about Autoset, a tool made by Velocity Robotics to make miter saw work more efficient. The two also spend time discussing how a return-on-investment (ROI) pitch gets made, and how Shark Tank can be bad for the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
