Mitsubishi Electric Automation creates startup program through sponsorship of MassRobotics

Mitsubishi Electric Automation has created a “Startup Engagement Program” through its sponsorship of MassRobotics.

MassRobotics, based in Boston, Massachusetts, is an independent, non-profit organization that aims to assist startups and existing technology organizations by providing them the workspace and resources they need to develop, prototype, test, and commercialize their products and solutions.

Through the Startup Engagement Program, Mitsubishi Electric Automation is looking to develop proof of concepts and potential investment opportunities.

Interested parties are invited to apply through MassRobotics’ website.

Ten companies will be selected through the program, and they will have the opportunity to visit Mitsubishi Electric’s headquarters in Japan and meet with the executives from the company in June of 2020.

Hideaki Minamide, senior director, from the North America Development Center of Mitsubishi Electric Automation, says: “We are excited to begin our collaboration with startup companies.

“We know that there are innovative solutions and technologies out there that will succeed and make a difference if given the resources to do so. We are excited to offer an opportunity to invest in and provide that.”
