Team behind Robot Uprising

Robot Uprising is volunteer-led community. We organize one big hackathon and several smaller events every year. Our team members come from extremely multidisciplinary backgrounds. Now our family’s head count is more than 30. We build everything with our own hands from robotics hardware and battle arenas to marketing and experience design.
