Student team Bumblebee was invited to showcase at InnovFest 2019, featuring many innovative solutions and startups. There was excitement about Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, and Crypto-currency. Everyone who passed were very impressed by the boat (it was the biggest ”exhibit”). There were many organisations interested in the applications of Unmanned Surface Vessels, and such corporates interested to use technology developed by the Bumblebee team were now able to further commercial discussions with BeeX.
BeeX Co-founder Grace Chia was featured on Bloomberg, delivered a pitch to raise funds under Graduate Research Innovation Programme (GRIP), and finally contributed to a panel discussion with Ang Chor-Chen, SESTO Robotics CEO and Juliana Lim, SGInnovate Head of Talent Networking, on how Robots affect the way we work.
