“PowerHydrant is part of the wonderful Autodesk STIR program here in Waltham. As a small start-up in robotics, we have also come to value the MassTLC Robotics Cluster. This was the initial and primary source of local industry contacts for us at PowerHydrant. Many positive things have come from this.”
- Kevin Leary, Founder & CEO, PowerHydrant
"The MassTLC Robotics Cluster paid off at the very first meeting Neurala attended. We met another company working in a complementary space, set-up a working group and jointly proposed for new business. Neurala expects that we will get significant additional revenue because of this and other connections we make at MassTLC."
