Collaborative Robotics with Rishabh Agarwal, Peer Robotics

Jul 18, 2023

Growing up in a big manufacturing family, Rishabh Agarwal, CEO of Peer Robotics, got an early look at the challenges manufacturers are facing. Now he's working to solve them - one robotic solution at a time.


Peer Robotics builds collaborative robots that solve some of the most simple, yet time and labor consuming tasks - moving materials around your shop floor. Rishabh's solutions aim to free up employees to do their most valuable work.

Best yet, the solutions are simple enough for any employee to implement - you don't need an expensive consultant or engineer spending hours to program and reprogram these robots. Simple solutions for complex problems will change the face of manufacturing.

Rishabh also talks to Ari about the Connecticut ecosystem and how it lead to starting his company here. They talk about the importance of embracing i4.0 technology and how it will help overcome labor shortages and improve quality. 

Rishabh's favorite business books:
    • The E Myth: Why Most Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About It, Michael E. Gerber 
    • Crossing the Chasm, Marketing and Selling Disruptive Products to Mainstream Customers, Geoffrey A. Moore
