2019 has already proven to be a year of milestones for the CEO of Alias Robotics, David Mayoral. This month, David gained elite membership to the most prestigious American business magazines, Forbes. He and 29 other successful individuals make up the Forbes 30 Under 30 of 2019. To be a recipient of this award means that, through innovative entrepreneurship, you´re changing the world. David who, at 27 years old, has already founded two successful robotics companies, is certainly on the path to entrepreneurial greatness. Joining the Forbes 30 Under 30 community isn´t the first award for David to receive, but it is the one he’s most proud of. Some of his other recognitions include winning the B2B category of South Summit in 2018, Young Entrepreneur of Spain 2015, Alaves of the Month, and Leader of one of Top 30 Promising Robotics Startups. In 2014, at only 19 years of age, David made himself an entrepreneur. Alongside his brother, the pair created Erle Robotics. Erle produced artificial brains for robots and after only two years of scaling the company, it sold to a Swiss Multinational called Acutronic Robotics. Now in 2019, David is the CEO and founder of his second robotics startup, Alias Robotics, which is creating the first robot immune system (RIS) as cybersecurity for robots. He saw a gap in the market after noticing that most companies focus on cybersecurity in the IT world, not Robotics. RIS is a bioinspired hardware solution that mimics the defensive principle of the human immune system; it functions to protect a robot´s condition while preventing attackers from penetrating its system and exploiting it. David sees only opportunities and has big plans for the strategic growth of Alias. He is
currently in the process of closing a Seed round in the next month, expanding the team, and increasing clients. On Wednesday, February 20th David will travel to London to receive his
award along with the other 29 Forbes 30 Under 30 recipients.
