StartUp Walk-In: Meet the entrepreneur behind self-driving supermarket robots
Are you driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, and do you have a groundbreaking robotics idea? Maybe you are about to take the big brave step? No matter where you are on your entrepreneurial journey, this StartUp Walk-In is the event for you.
Clionadh Martin, also known as Clio, is a Franco-Irish visionary specialising in developing and constructing supermarket mobile robots. Her background includes a master’s degree in advanced robotics, and her entrepreneurial journey started in Odense in 2016, where she worked as a robot developer at Blue Ocean Robotics.
In 2018, she took the brave step and founded Coalescent Mobile Robotics, and shortly after the company entered the Odense Robotics StartUp Hub at DTI (what is now know as Odense Robotics StartUp Fund & Incubator).
A combination of Clio’s belief in the company, drive and her go-getter courage has secured Coalescent Mobile Robotics a talented team of 21 employees with many different nationalities.
The company also recently made an impressive double-digit million investment, which will strengthen its international expansion focused on shop robots.
Process optimisation with advanced robotic technology
Coalescent Mobile Robotics designs and builds fast and flexible collaborative robots (cobots) to help the retail industry optimise their ‘click and collect’ processes and replenishment processes, which today require manual and heavy work by moving goods from warehouse to shelf.
Through the automation of store-specific tasks, mobile robots play a decisive role in solving challenges and optimising processes. Clio’s ambition is clear: Coalescent Mobile Robotics will be the leading to-go technology in the retail industry.
Join us for the StartUp Walk-In on 12 October 2023, where we will present a female role model for the first time. Clio looks forward to sharing her journey and inspiring with precious advice in the form of dos and don’ts in robotics entrepreneurship.
