Van Robotics builds smart social robots that use artificial intelligence and instructional content to help classroom teachers with small group activities and one-on-one tutoring. After proving its robotic technology in 2018 and then conducting an extensive beta test with classroom teachers and students in 2019, Van Robotics was ready to launch its go-to-market strategy in 2020. They had a full calendar of tradeshows and conventions planned for marketing to educators and the technology sector– all of which were canceled under the threat of the Covid-19 virus. Laura Buccanfuso, founder and CEO, discusses Van Robotics, its mission and products, and how Covid forced them to change their marketing approach but opened up unexpected new applications and new marketing opportunities.
