Journey

Invento Robotics came into existence in October 2016.The inspiration came from an event of their own educational startup,Invento Makerspaces in 2015 when a robot made by a team of Invento gained much appreciation during a maker fair.

The guidance Invento Robotics was seeking was not easily available.The invester ecosystem also was not primarily looking for hardware products-hence funding was hard.The foundewrs went for conventional route to fund their growth aspirations after the VC market in India failed to show much interest.

Balaji Vishwanathan said in an interview that manufacturing in India is problematic,but manufacturing out of India and getting it here is more problamatic.As they did one run in China and got stuck in customs for two months.So they decided to do a sizeable chunk of their manufacturing from Bengaluru.

Where can we meet MITRA?   

 The robot which welcomes customers as receptionist at Canara Bank, Bengaluru Circle Office in Bengaluru,India.

Proof of concept can now be found walking in the corridors of Canara Bank and PVR Cinemas in Bengaluru,greeting consumers and telling them what they like best.

Mitri

Invento Robotics turned profitable two months back and will soon be launching a female version of Mitra,to be known by the name of 'Mitri'.The only difference will be in the body design.While Mitra comes equipped with a tablet,Mitri has been handsed a tray.
