"In the era of Industry 4.0, automation and efficient logistics are critical factors for the growth of any industry. Large companies are gradually adopting automation, but it is far beyond the reach of mid-sized and smaller businesses, as well as other industries such as mining, construction, and agriculture," said Bhawna Bhatnagar, co-founder, We Founder Circle.

"As there are no relevant solutions for outdoors and multiple terrains at affordable prices, our vision is to completely revolutionize the Indian industry through automation to maintain a quality that is competitive with the global market. Our solutions have already been very well received by our clients and within the first year of our incorporation, we have delivered our robot to a Fortune 500 company," said Suchit Sharma, founder and CEO, Uma Robotics.
