Robotiq Gets a Can$31M Energy Boost from Battery Ventures

Maybe it's because I have had a training in physics but to me, money is energy. The more you have, the more you can make things move. Now Robotiq has much more and we will move bigger things even faster! That extra boost comes from Battery Ventures, who just invested $31M in Robotiq. We have an official press release relating this exciting news but I wanted to write a personal note on the event as it will transform this company I co-founded 10 years ago with JP and Vincent.
