with us on Saturday, July 17th and Sunday, July 18th, 2021.
Helen’s goal since she was 11 has been to create robots. Her career has been her dream come true. She co-founded and served as Chairman and President of iRobot Corporation for 18 years.
Helen also founded CyPhy Works, a drone company that delivered persistent drones flying for many hours, days, weeks at a time autonomously. We had them deployed in Iraq and Syria with Army and Special Forces where they saved lives. CyPhy was sold to NASDAQ[FLIR].
Helen likes delivering robot products that surprise and delight customers with utility, intelligence, and price. "Helen’s love of mechanics and engineering was innate from the very beginning. While she didn’t always feel as though she fit in with the other girls growing up, she pursued her dream anyway to one day build a robot just like R2D2. She is the finest example of living life on her own terms."
