SP Robotic Works raises INR 2 Crore from Indian Angel Network and The Chennai Angels.

In a bid to grow and expand, Chennai- based startup SP Robotics, which provides robotic education to school and college students, has raised a funding of Rs 2 crore from Indian Angel Network (IAN), along with The Chennai Angels (TCA).

The company democratizes technologies and offers tailor-made courseware for ages 12 to 17, to help find their field of interest and pursue it to be a researcher of tomorrow. A digital version of the courseware will be released through its Kidobotikz program, which will be launched initially in Chennai and then expand to other places in South Africa.

Sneha Priya, Co-Founder at Kidobotikz, “Robotics is the future. Just as IT changed the job spectrum across the world dramatically. IAN and TCA are excellent platforms to raise funds and be connected with the best network of people.”

Kidobotikz also encourages children to work towards social issues like waste management, agriculture, and hazardous handling. The unique methodology incorporates experimentation with participatory and innovative techniques, and at the same time ensure success and fun for children.

Nagaraja Prakasam, lead IAN investor, said, “Proving my thesis around People, Problems, Tech (PPT), SP Robotics is enabling the younger generation to think towards solving real problems Robotics way. One of my portfolios Saahas Zero Waste is working with them providing real time problems to solve. Similarly, they are working towards Agritech solutions for our farmers as well.

A small showcase of the talent of Kidobotikz students was ‘The Swachh Bot’, which was a beach cleaning robot, done by 40 school students inspired by the government launched Swachh Bharath mission.
