Company roadmap

Being a full service company means we're earning revenue while engineering our prototype.

Late 2022

Received our initial investment to begin development of our prototye, the goat.

Middle 2023

Begin servicing customer's lawns in the beta program.

Late 2023

Finish the goat and begin utilizing it on customer's lawns.

Early 2024

Refine the goat and produce the first production run of robots.


We're located in the middle of the country with the opportunity to expand in all directions. The co-founders of Ruminant met at the University of Missouri and received funding from a local VC firm making it convenient to stay. The start-up scene in the midwest has been growing at an exponentially fast rate making useful resources plentiful.

Funding our dream

Ruminant Robotics Inc. received their first round of funding from Scale VC , a firm started by William and Jabbok Schlacks (two of the founders of EquipmentShare) and Jai Malik (also the founder of Countdown Capital). We will be raising another round of funding following the completion of our first prototype. Contact us by emailing hello@ruminantrobotics.com if you represent a venture capital firm and you're interested in learning more about our mission and what we plan on doing following the completion of the goat.
