Frank Tobe

25+ years as consultant to the DNC and major presidential, senatorial, congressional, mayoral campaigns and initiatives all across the U.S., Canada and internationally.

In early 2008, in a personal effort to learn about the robotics industry and the future of robotics, and with an eye toward selectively investing in publicly-traded and privately owned robotics businesses, I began an intensive research project that took me to Japan, Korea, Germany and all over the US and the Internet.

My eyesight has suffered but not my mind. I love what I'm doing and finding out and, in an effort to share my research, I set up The Robot Report, to track the business of robotics and this blog to provide in-depth opinion and insights.
