The founders of Awabot
Bruno Bonnell has launched numerous companies since the 1980s, mainly in digital technology. The companies he creates follow the market trends.
Often called a visionary, he transforms his intuitions into the creation of value and jobs in innovative and international companies, initially in telecommunications and video games, and then in robotics, with Awabot. In 2017, he became the member of the French parliament for the Rhône constituency, and consequently resigned from his position as the CEO of Awabot.
FOUNDER AND MANAGING DIRECTOR
Jérémie Koessler is a graduate of the School of Engineering in Digital Science and Technology.
When Bruno Bonnell, whom he had already known for 15 years, invited him to take up a new challenge in 2012, he left his position in a prospering enterprise to join a new-born start-up. The Awabot adventure had begun. His top priority as the Technical Director was to analyse the technological processes of robotics and to organise the company to operate in project mode. 2 years later, he was appointed Managing Director, and he oversaw the transformation of the company from an R&D centre into a commercial business. With his expert knowledge of international business, he was able to contribute to the foundations of a company destined for bigger things.
In 2014, he managed and won the call for tender for the "Robot Lycéen", issued by the Rhône-Alpes regional government. After a world tour spent visiting manufacturers of telepresence robots, he turned Awabot into France’s top designer and distributor of service robots. He recruited and developed the sales force, and established close ties with the company’s major accounts. The company took steps to break into an emerging market, its reputation grew, and the "robolution" was under way.
As the standard-setter in service robotics, Awabot is the bond that links people to robots.
BEYOND ROBOTICS, because we have a strong belief in robotics that connects, bonds, and enables us to interact with one another. For the doubters amongst you, robotics is first and foremost about people, a technological response to the needs that Man still cannot meet.
• Humanist: we believe that well-integrated robotics can help enterprises, and the people who work in them, to break free from constraints and tasks with little added value.
• Opportunism: in other words, seize every opportunity, and dare to make the change!
• Benefits and uses: our ambition? To make you forget all about machines and technology, so that you can concentrate on uses, user satisfaction, and the benefits you will reap.
• Common sense: while we love to push the technological envelope, we also know how to remain lucid and humble, because, just like you, we do not like unkept promises.
