UW startup WiBotic among GeekWire’s 2016 “Seattle 10” hot startups

WiBotic CEO Ben Waters

“From the brick walkways of Pioneer Square to the funky facades of Fremont, there’s a lot of startup action in Seattle.

“So trying to identify the 10 hottest entrepreneurial ventures in the region is no easy task. But that’s what we’ve set out to do with this year’s class of The Seattle 10, which we’re hosting again in partnership with the Museum of History & Industry

“We’re putting our entrepreneurs to work, asking each of The Seattle 10 winners to reproduce their business ideas on giant six-foot by six-foot cocktail napkins that will be unveiled for the first time at the GeekWire Gala on Dec. 7th at MOHAI.”

In 2013, CSE startup SNUPI was among The Seattle 10. In 2014, CSE startup GraphLab was among The Seattle 10. This year, it’s CSE+EE startup WiBotic, out of the Sensor Systems Laboratory of UW CSE+EE professor Joshua Smith. WiBotic provides reliable wireless power to charge aerial, mobile and aquatic robot systems.
