Hyderabad: At the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) 2017 in Hyderabad on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and White House advisor Ivanka Trump were greeted by ‘Made in India’ robot, named Mitra.

Mitra, a robot manufactured by Bengaluru-based Invento Robotics, interacted with Modi and Ivanka at the summit.

 

CEO of Invento Robotics, Balaji Viswanathan, and his team of 14 members deployed two bots at the event, but it was Mitra that welcomed the Prime Minister and daughter of US President Donald Trump on the stage at the summit.
