It was so nice to reconnect to Jack Morrison to talk about his company, Scythe Robotics. Scythe builds autonomous lawnmowers to sell to commercial lawn care companies. Jack and I first got connected at Boulder Startup week in 2016, and three years later, here we are. On this episode, we dive into questions like:

What are you building at Scythe?

What fundamental problems does Scythe help solve?

Is the lawnmower owned by the city, a family, or a commercial company?

What knowledge did you have going into Scythe?

What goes into building an autonomous lawnmower?

What is Lidar and Radar, and which one did you pick for Scythe?

Do you have plans to go beyond commercial neighborhoods

What is the sales process for Scythe’s lawnmowers?

Do you see other companies using autonomous robots in different verticals?

What do you think about Boston Dynamics?

How do you see cities using parking lots in the future?

What do you think about Tesla?

What is Forward Thinking Founder?

Welcome to Forward Thinking Founder (f20r)! f20r is a podcast and publication where I interview high potential startup founders, usually before they hit their Series A. Past guests include Austen Allred, Daniel Gross, Leah Culver, Laura Behrens Wu, and many more.

Consider it the opposite of “How I Built This”. Instead of interviewing someone after they are successful, we interview early founders with a little traction and a big vision, and hear what they want to will into the world and why. This is Forward Thinking Founder.
