The Business of Robotics provides readers with unique insights into the global business of robotics, delivering news, opinions and features prepared by a staff of editors and outside contributors. ReconRobotics is providing financial support for the site's launch, but The Business of Robotics is a separate, editorially independent entity that will provide an unbiased view of industry happenings. The blog provides authoritative journalistic content presented in an easy-to-read and conversational style. Because of its global focus, the site's translation tool makes it available in 70 different languages.

Editorial content will be directed by Mike Davin, an experienced journalist who has been working on business publications since 2008. He will be assisted by managing editor Ian Bignall, who is based in New York.

"This is a special time for robotics. Processing power, sensors, AI, venture capital, Kickstarter - everything is coming together at once to create an explosion in this industry," Davin said. "At The Business of Robotics, we want to help businesses navigate this chaotic and exciting period. There's no doubt this industry is growing quickly, but we want to facilitate the conversations and connections that will help it grow intelligently."
