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, medical robots, factory automation, 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 and, hopefully, new exciting startups to form
  • Increasingly, STIQRobotics 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
  • Networking with c.100 attendees from a wide variety of companies including investors, incumbents, startups, postgrad students, component suppliers, etc.
  • Drinks and pizza (some events may have other foods/options - we try to cater for allergies, etc. as well) provided by sponsors
  • 6-10 presentations at each event broken into two sessions book ended by networking sessions

Can anyone attend your events?

  • Yes, we welcome students, recent startups, investors, incumbents, legacy companies, etc.
  • Note that space for recruiters and other service providers may be limited depending on sponsors



STIQ Robotics #7: 8 May, 2024
Host: Hill Dickinson
Sponsors: onshape + Cambridge Consultants

STIQRobotics 7th in-person meetup event gathered c.100 attendees at Hill Dickinson's Shoreditch offices to see presentations from onshape, Cambridge Consultants, Extend Robotics, Recycleye, Coalescent Robotics, Bow, StrongPoint, EisaBotics, and Kaikaku

Attendees included Wayve with their recently announced $1bn+ funding round (all dressed in money suits... not really), Johnson & Johnson, Asendia, Ocado, Kaikaku, Brightpick, Covariant, AWL, Coalescent Robotics, Islington Robotica, National Oceanography Centre, Dexory, and many others including a few university students about to graduate into AI and Robotics this summer - we wish all these student good luck and also that they return to our events once they have found jobs in the sector.

Displays of robotics from Eisabotics (PhD project), Kaikaku, Cambridge Consultants, and Extend Robotics.

As usual, the focus of STIQrobotics events is to keep presentations to a strict time limit for the benefit of important networking. We also tried our best to enforce our informal rule that people from the same organisations are not allowed to talk to each other at our events.

If you attended - please share some images of the event on social media or let us know your thoughts. Use the #STIQrobotics hashtag if you post, etc. 

If you were unable to attend - here's the livestream recording of the presentations.
