IEEE Entrepreneurship attended TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco to seek out the next startups to be inducted into the 2019 IEEE N3XT Star Cohort.

Disrupt SF is a three day conference focused on breaking technology news and developments with big-name thought leaders who are making waves in the industry.  At the heart of Disrupt SF lies Startup Alley, the startup exhibition hall, where hundreds of early-stage startups showcase their latest developments.

IEEE N3XT Star Judges identify competition candidate ventures with engineering-driven innovation at their core that align with the IEEE core purpose to foster technology, innovation, and excellence for the benefit of humanity.  IEEE Entrepreneurship would like to offer the utmost gratitude for the volunteer time and effort of our 2019 TechCrunch Disrupt SF Judge team:

IEEE Entrepreneurship recognizes the following companies as IEEE N3XT Stars:

The belief of Seoul Robotics is that 3D sensors will unlock the next level of robotics. The goal is to provide the most advanced AI engine for 3D sensors,  because sensors are only as intelligent as their software provider in the world.
