Sanjeev Kumar, Founder, Alphadroid

Could you share the inspiration behind founding Alphadroid and how the idea of leveraging AI-powered robots for the service industry came to you?


The inspiration behind founding Alphadroid stems from a personal belief that many repetitive tasks currently performed by humans could be more effectively and enriching be carried out by machines. Tasks such as heavy load lifting, hygiene maintenance, and public cleaning consume valuable human resources but have the potential to be done more efficiently and effectively by machines. This would free up human workers to engage in more intellectually stimulating and enriching activities.

The initial spark for Alphadroid came from observing a robot and its activities in Malaysia. However, our vision soon evolved to encompass a broader spectrum of tasks. During our journey across the UK and Indian restaurants, we identified a common challenge: establishments were hesitant to adopt complex and expensive technology solutions to address efficiency issues. This observation crystallized Alphadroid’s mission – to empower restaurants with affordable and user-friendly robotics.

Alphadroid was born out of a desire to merge human intellect with technology, creating solutions that maximize efficiency in service industries through automation. Our service robots are equipped with human-empowering intelligence, enhancing efficiency and productivity with cutting-edge technology.


Market validation and testing have been key in our journey. The curiosity and enthusiasm we encountered in the field reaffirmed the market demand for such innovations, fueling our determination to refine and customize our offerings to exceed expectations. We believe that great products are always a work in progress, and only together can we progress.
