In 2012 we had a vision - that personal robots could help people do their jobs better. We set out to modify our consumer products to make small, industrial, situational awareness robots to help people with dangerous jobs make better decisions. We built prototype after prototype but realized that the state of technology just wasn’t ready for the applications we dreamed about. But we never gave up.
As technologies like batteries, cameras and networks improved we continued to make prototypes. By early 2019 we decided it was time to pursue our vision by dedicating a team to focus exclusively on this big idea. In May of 2020 it was time to branch out on our own and the core team of nine engineers and designers spun out of Sphero and created Company Six.
As a new independent company with fresh venture financing, we have a lot more than most startups. We come with numerous robotic innovations and patents, manufacturing relationships, deep learnings on critical mechanical configurations and the years of experience from the seasoned team that made 15 consumer robots and sold over 5 million units worldwide.
The founding team of Company Six is passionate about creating the tools that help people do their job better and stay safe. The information our robots will give first responders and commercial workers allows for better decision making. Better decisions can save lives. We are delivering the future of safety at a price that allows our tools to be used by the many - not the few.
Why the name - Company Six? We are your second set of eyes - we help you “check your six” whenever the need arises.
We’ve got your back.
