NASHUA, NH, July 22, 2020 – Waypoint Robotics has been named a 2020 finalist for the prestigious New England Innovation Awards for our fleet of industrial-strength, omnidirectional autonomous mobile robots. First launched in 1986 and now under the stewardship of the Massachusetts Innovation Network, the NE Innovation Awards celebrates companies across the region with revolutionary products, technologies, or processes working to improve lives.
The awards recognize, support and publicize ground-breaking solutions and pioneering advancements in a variety of business sectors, that shape tomorrow’s economy. Historically, the Awards have helped catapult start-ups and young companies to success (Genzyme, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, zipcar, iRobot, KRONOS, MassChallenge, Vistaprint, and Staples) for the past 35 years.
This year, twenty-six independent judges comprised of innovators, entrepreneurs, professionals, and business leaders undertook the challenging task of assessing the innovation entries and selecting the finalists, out of a large pool of high quality applicants. The top-three scoring innovators in each category were chosen to move on to the New England Innovation Showcase, the final and live phase of the competition. Finalists will exhibit their innovations, present a three-minute pitch, and answer questions about their breakthroughs on Wednesday, October 21st, for the New England Innovation Award of their category.
