Samay Kohli scores big with robotic automation


NEW DELHI: Samay Kohli isn’t certainly a household name in India. He has, sort of, come from nowhere to become the lone Indian to be part of the global list of 2016 Innovators under 35, in the Entrepreneurs sub-category, published by the MIT Technolgy Review.

Kohli, 30, has been honoured as an entrepreneur for his outstanding contribution in the field of computer and electronics hardware, joining the ranks of the Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and the Facebook founder and chief executive officer (CEO) Mark Zuckerberg, who have been on the list previously.

Kohli, an innovator who disrupted the traditional supply chain operations through robotic automation, is co-founder and CEO of GreyOrange, a robotics firm he founded in 2011 along with his friend Akash Gupta, who is the chief technology officer.

GreyOrange designs, manufactures and deploys advanced robotics systems for automation at warehouses, distribution and fulfilment centres (warehouses maintained by online retailers) across the world.
