After having made a fortune with the Russian web company Mail.ru, you could forgive Dmitry Grishin for taking it easy. But the 33-year-old has something else in mind — becoming the man who kickstarts a revolution in robotics.
On Friday, Grishin is launching a new $25 million investment fund, Grishin Robotics, with the intention of funding a new generation of robotics startups. It’s his own money, and he wants to use it for something more exciting than yet-another-internet-business.
