Root Robotics


    The idea for Root was formed and incubated when cofounders Zee Dubrovsky (formerly with Sonos, iRobot), Raphael Cherney (formerly with Apple, Microsoft), and Harvard University computer science Professor Radhika Nagpal were working together at Harvard University's Wyss Institute.

    After successfully piloting and refining Root in homes and classrooms, in 2016 Root Robotics was seeded with nearly $400k through Kickstarter by the support of over 1,800 backers. TLP Investment Partners later led Root Robotics's Series Seed financing round and they were joined by Resolute Ventures, Dream Incubator, Coding & Play, and Harmony Capital.
