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.

During the InnoVision Awards webinar, Laura Buccanfuso, founder and CEO, and her team will discuss how the Covid crisis forced them to change their marketing approach but also opened up unexpected new applications and new marketing opportunities.
