📖Story Corner📖

This week, we launched Story Corner, a collection of stories from our partners and CloudHub members. Our first post was from Robotto, a Danish company dedicated to tackling the growing problem of wildfires using drone technology. We spoke with Robotto CEO and co-founder Kenneth Richard Geipel about how their company how COVID-19 has impacted their operation as part of our Navigating Crisis series. 

Kenneth shared... “What we are doing in Robotto is showing empathy to one another. It’s okay to have an off day, it’s okay if your personal life gets in the way. Everything will be delayed, including agreements with our partners, it is just something we have to accept. By doing this, we hope to come out of this pandemic with a stronger relationship to one another and our collaborators.”

You can find the rest of our interview with Kenneth from Robotto on the newly launched Story Corner.
