-- Fast Company's annual Most Innovative Companies issue honors leading businesses including Apple, Amazon, Google, and Seegrid along with such rising newcomers as Square, Fab and Tumblr. In addition to this great honor, Seegrid was also ranked in the world’s top 10 most innovative companies in robotics. Erik Sofge was the contributing editor at Fast Company who announced Seegrid’s Robotics ranking.
Mitchell Weiss. Chief Operating Officer for Seegrid said, “That’s one small step for a robot, one giant leap for robotkind. We are very proud of our selection to the top ten in robotics. It confirms that bringing robot autonomy through perception into industry is the right one.” Seegrid is positioned to have record sales in 2013 and was honored to be named one of the 2013 World's Most Innovative Companies and Top 10 Robotics companies by Fast Company.
