What are STIQ Robotics events?

  • STIQ Robotics is a series of informal evening networking events focusing on the robotics industry (including warehouse automation, humanoids, cobots, industrial robots, etc).
  • Each event is split into networking breaks and two batches of 4x5min presentations from startups, sponsors, etc.
  • There is ample time for networking, remember to load up your LinkedIn app on your phone to connect with everyone you meet at a STIQ Robotics event 

Why did STIQ start up the STIQ Robotics events?

  • STIQ interviews warehouse automation, material handling and robotics companies across the globe and found that we rarely interview companies in the UK.
  • STIQ Robotics was initially an attempt at fostering a better robotics ecosystem in the UK, giving the few robotics companies here a chance to network and learn from each other, investors, incumbents, students and others to grow
  • Increasingly, these events attract users and foreign robotics companies

What can I expect as a presenter or as an attendee?

  • It is free to attend a STIQ Robotics event
  • Each event hosts about 100 attendees from a wide variety of companies including investors, incumbents, startups, postgrad students, component suppliers, etc.
  • At each event there is drinks and pizza (some events may have other foods/options - we try to cater for allergies, etc. as well) provided by sponsors
  • There are 6-10 presentations at each event broken into two sessions book ended by proper networking

Can anyone attend your events?

  • Yes, we welcome students, recent startups, investors, incumbents, legacy companies, etc.
  • Note that recruiters may be limited depending on sponsors
