From February – October 2020, we participated in the Nexus Impact Accelerator Fellowship, which began at the Nexus Global conference in DC in February 2020 – our last in-person conference before the global COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. At Nexus Global, we pitched our Jevaroo robotic arm on a movable platform.
During the Fellowship, our cohort met via Zoom every Monday morning for peer support, I gave a speech about robotics to the Nexus community, and I received mentorship from executive coaches a few times a month. It was very valuable to have a strong peer support group while the world became crazy and confusing with the pandemic.
We were meant to conclude our Fellowship by giving a speech onstage at the next Nexus USA Conference in August 2020. With the pandemic, that didn’t happen. Maybe we’ll present at the next Nexus in-person conference? Regardless, I’m looking forward to the next Nexus in-person conference and seeing everyone again!
