Information about SVR Membership for 2023

Thanks to our new partnership with AMT, the Association for Manufacturing Technology, another (much larger) 501c6 industry association, we can afford to keep membership in Silicon Valley Robotics very low compared to the value we offer. We also scale membership costs so that startups and small companies can afford it.

Since our foundation in 2010 by companies including SRI International, Bosch, Adept Technologies, Intuitive Surgical, NASA and Willow Garage, our mission has been to support innovation and commercialization of robotics technologies. We’ve seen 2 or 3 person startups transform into world-leading category-creating giants, ushering in the Robotics 2.0 Revolution. We are at the heart of the largest robotics cluster in the world with the best access to capital and talent, helping you build the best robots in the world.

SVR membership allows you to participate in thought leadership events and invitation only networking. We also amplify your company’s story. Submit articles and events to us and we will share them. We have great reach into the professional robotics and investment community. The slides and bullet points below capture some key details, and I’m happy to hop on a call to see how we can help you grow.
