Our company, BIT TECHNOLOGIES RO got a 10,000 euro seed money from Hyundai Romania for VisionBot SMT Placement Equipment . We received the fund at the Junior Achievement Romania’s national contest “Company of the Year”, where the founder, Alexandru Ionut Budisteanu presented VisionBot. For us, it is a really great achievement because we received some funds to continue our goal to enable the dreams of millions of makers, electrical engineers and SMEs to transform electronic prototypes into products. At that contest, we got also the great honor to present our company in Lisbon, Portugal at the European stage of the “Company of the Year”.[:]
VisionBot is delighted to be the recipient of the Impact Hub’s Social Impact Award – SIA 2015. For us, VisionBot is not just a business, it is an affordable assembly line for PCBs designed for makers, electrical engineers, hardware startups, hackers, inventors and SMEs. Our mission is to bring VisionBot Pick and Place Robots to everyone’s garage – and by this to enable markers to start a PCBA medium production very soon, easy and efficient. From the the Social Impact Award 2015 judges panel, we got a lot of really productive feedback and know-how to develop VisionBot furthermore. The biggest first two milestones for VisionBot and BIT TECHNOLOGIES RO are
- Finishing a fully functional prototype of VisionBot
- Start a small VisionBot assembly production in Romania.
All this award money will be invested in VisionBot because we really want to achieve these two really important milestones for us.[:]
