logo12You may know MecklerMedia as the leader around the world for trade shows, conferences, and publications which cover a wide range of topics related to the hottest technology of today. This is also a company, however, that remains dedicated to encouraging and promoting new ideas and companies who have the bravery, impetus, and forward thinking mindsets to explore far outside today’s ‘box’ and offer up services, products, and concepts that breathe life back into the word ‘groundbreaking. ‘

3dp-logoNumerous fledgling entities have received their initial acclaim through MecklerMedia startup competitions, whether they were the winners or not–although for companies like Voxel8 who we followed last May as they entered the RoboGameChanger Startup Competition in New York, winning was definitely an awesome experience and enormous boost as they went on in July to raise $12M in a Series A round of funding. The recent Inside 3D Printing Startup Competition in Santa Clara, won by Metamson, shows even more startups gaining traction through these contests, pitting talented team against talented team.

Now, it’s time to give a chance to a whole new group of startups at RoboUniverse San Diego on December 15 at the San Diego Convention Center. Sponsored by Mooreland Partners and Asimov Ventures, the winner of San Diego’s RoboGameChanger Startup Competition can look forward to a $10,000 prize (uncapped convertible note) from early-stage technology venture capital firm, Asimov Ventures, which shares in the commitment to offering these startups exposure to industry leaders as well as receiving valuable feedback from experienced, seasoned robotics innovators–all while they have the pleasure of competing to win and have the opportunity to raise funding.
