On February 29th, 2012, Clearpath Robotics was announced as the Canadian winner of Shopify’s Build-a-Business Competition. We couldn’t be more excited to be part of this exemplary group of startups.

Clearpath Robotics went head to head with over 3,000 international companies during the eight-month competition period and won based on total highest grossing sales. Clearpath’s product is the TurtleBot, a small, personal robot with big personality. Fully customizable and built on an open-source framework, the TurtleBot is user-friendly, portable and fun. It is rapidly becoming the world standard in entrance level robotics educational tools.

Our customers are essential to the success of Clearpath Robotics. Clearpath values the commitment and ongoing loyalty of its customers and their involvement in the robotics industry. Thank you TurtleBot customers for making this achievement possible! As part of the prize Clearpath’s CEO, Matt Rendall, headed to New York City for a one-on-one power session with marketing genius Seth Godin.
