Trashbots Raises Seed-Stage Investment as Demand for its K-12 Robotics Platform Increases

Sep 10, 2020

Trashbots Raises Seed-Stage Investment as Demand for its K-12 Robotics Platform Increases September 10, 2020 by lalorek Trashbots’ robotics kit, photo courtesy of Trashbots The pandemic has spurred demand for Trashbots , which makes a hands-on robotics platform aimed at the K-12 market. “The K-12 market, as a whole, is more important now than ever,”said Rohit Srinivasan, Co-Founder of Trashbots. “Especially as schools are tryingto figure out how they are going to teach in a post COVID world.” Trashbots provides a really unique way for schools to do hands-onSTEM and robotics education from the safety of a student’s own home, he said. “That is what makes us more relevant now than ever,” he said. “Schoolsare buying our product and shipping it to their students’ home and conductingrobotics classes over Zoom.” And it’s not just schools, Rohit said. Parents are also buying Trashbot’sproducts, he said. The Austin-based startup recently completed the Sputnik accelerator, which provided its initial investment round of $100,000. Trashbots is working to complete its $500,000 seed-stage round and has signed on Trinidadian DJ and entrepreneur Christopher Leacock, also known as Jillionaire, founder of Silicon Labs, Nav Sooch; Austin Ventures founder, Joe Aragona; and founder of Yodle and OJO Labs, John Berkowitz. Trashbots plans to use the funding to expand its supply chains andinventory and on marketing and hiring two or three additional employees. The company has four employees right now andhas several contract employees as well. Trashbots is also able to run a really lean company and tap into talent pools at the university level by providing students with hands-on experience working on a robotics startup, Rohit Srinivasan said. In Austin, Rohit Srinivasan and his brotherSidharth Srinivasan founded Trashbots in the spring of 2016 along with PaulAustin, a former NI executive. The Srinivasan brothers were still in highschool at the time. Today, Rohit is a junior studying engineering at theUniversity of Texas at Austin and Sidharth has graduated from Westlake HighSchool and deferred his acceptance to Stanford for a year to work on Trashbotsfull time. The Sputnik Accelerator program allowed Trashbots to kick the businessin high gear and scale the business, Rohit Srinivasan said. It also introducedthem to their current COO Chris Strzok, who lives in Wisconsin and has abackground in STEM education. Trashbots sells its products nationally to schools and toindividuals through its website. It’s seen a huge uptick in demand since thepandemic, Sidharth Srinivasan said. And right now, schools are seeking productsthat provide an alternative to screen time for students, he said. “They need other ways to keep their students engaged that is notstaring at a screen,” Sidharth Srinivasan said. Trashbots has been a good solution to that, he said. “We’re poised to see a lot of growth over the next year orso,” Rohit Srinivasan said. Trashbots sells a Trashbots Kit for $100 or a 10 pack for$1,000. It also provides courses for free on its website to program the robot. Students have made fishing rods, ball kickers, construction machines, and even a robot that makes music with the kits, Rohit Srinivasan said. “The possibilities of what you can do with this one kit islimitless,” he said.
