Kristi Martindale, Chief Marketing Officer, Sarcos Robotics
It’s been an exciting year for the team at Sarcos Robotics as we’ve been laser focused on bringing our highly-dexterous, life-saving robotics solutions to market. We officially announced our Guardian™ S robotic mobile Internet of Things (IoT) platform earlier this year at Hannover Messe in Germany. In September, the Guardian S was awarded a Fast Company Design by Innovation Award, and last month our Guardian GT robot made headlines for its dexterity and ease of use in WIRED Magazine, among many others.
This week, Sarcos Robotics is pleased to have been selected as a Gold award winner in the 7th annual Best in Biz Awards. Sarcos was presented with the Gold award in the Most Innovative Product of the Year- Enterprise category for our Guardian™ S platform. The Best in Biz Awards is the only independent business awards program judged annually by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America.
Each year, Best in Biz Awards’ entrants span the spectrum, from some of the most innovative local start-ups to the most recognizable global brands. The seventh annual program was particularly hotly contested, with more than 650 entries from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada. Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from this distinct composition of its judging panels, allowing it to best leverage the judges’ unparalleled expertise, experience and objectivity to determine award winners. The 2017 judging panel included: Accounting Today, AdWeek, Associated Press, Atlanta Tribune, Business News Daily, Consumer Affairs, Entrepreneur, eWeek, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Healthcare Innovation News, Inc., Investment Advisor Magazine, Laptop, MediaPost, Pittsburgh Business Times, Security Products Magazine, Wired, WLRN and Yahoo Tech.
We’re incredibly honored to have received such a prestigious award chosen by some of the best editors and reporters from top-tier outlets in North America. Our Guardian S robotic platform represents many years of research and development, and we’re thrilled to be recognized for the innovation in design. We saw a need across a variety of industries for a flexible, man-portable all-terrain sensor platform that can access tight spaces and keep humans out of harm’s way, with the Guardian S we’re able to address that need.
Congratulations to all of the 2017 Best in Biz award winners. The complete list can be found here: http://www.bestinbizawards.com/2017-winners.
