Linda Pouliot has a passion—and that’s making robots!
Linda is the Founder / CEO of Dishcraft Robotics. In 2004, she co-founded Neato Robotics (acquired) with the idea that robots can perform household chores as intelligently as humans. Neato’s award winning vacuums, powered by their proprietary, low-cost laser distance scanner and autonomous navigation software, sell at big box retailers throughout the world, making Neato the #2 consumer robotic vacuum company globally.

Neato proved to be one of the most eye-opening experiences in her career; revealing to her the power of technology and how it can be used to benefit consumers on all levels—and where, especially as a woman, she learned plenty about the being part of the tech industry.
