The latest company in our Where are They Now? series features Boulder-based Sphero, who first graduated from Techstars in 2010. Their passionate mentor, Paul Berberian, joined as their CEO later on that year. Sphero has grown quickly and even with their popularity and success, decided to go through the Disney Accelerator program in 2014. This experience led to an exciting opportunity to be involved with a new robot named BB-8—a new character in the upcoming installment of the Star Wars series!

Sphero is also making a positive impact on the world with their SPRK (Schools, Parents, Robots, Kids) program. By combining technology and robots, they’re teaching and inspiring children of all ages.  Whether you’re an educator or a parent, SPRK lessons give kids a fun crash course in programming while sharpening their skills in math and science.

Check out the video below and congratulations to everyone at Sphero!
