Kent McElhattan’s entire business career has been dedicated to the safety of workers.

 

In 1985, Kent co-founded Industrial Scientific and built a worldwide leader in IOT and predictive analytics for the safety industry. The company climbed to hundreds of millions in revenue and sold to Fortive.

 

After that success, Kent started another company, Discovery Robotics, aimed to bring robotics technology to the field of janitorial services. Their first product is an autonomous floor-cleaning robot.

 

The company’s mission remains to increase human productivity and safety.

 

In this conversation, Kent and Aaron discuss how he ended up focusing on industrial cleaning, the lessons Kent has taken from Industrial Scientific, and the future of work.

 

Pittsburgh’s best conference to Expand your Mind & Fill your Heart happens once a year.
