NACCU New Member Highlight:
In this latest installment of our New Member Highlight, we catch up with Ryan Tuohy with new NACCU member Starship.
What is the exact name of your company?
What does your company do?
Starship Technologies is revolutionizing deliveries with autonomous robots. The robots are designed to deliver food, groceries, and packages across campus in minutes. Starship delivery robots have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles, completed over 500,000 deliveries, crossed over 5 million roads, and met millions of people in cities around the world.
What products and services do you provide specifically to campus card operations?
Starship's robots will deliver food ordered on the Starship app from university dining facilities to patrons around campus. The energy-efficient robots can have their location and delivery time tracked by recipients through the app, and only the person placing the order can unlock the robot to retrieve a meal using the Starship app. It is contactless, convenient, and low cost.
Is there a new product or service you want to tell us about?
The Starship robots provide safe, contactless, and fast deliveries during a time when universities are going above and beyond to ensure their students, faculty, and staff feel safe and secure on campus.

What are you hoping to gain from your NACCU membership?
Starship is excited to join NACCU and provide NACCU members with information on contactless, autonomous deliveries to help maintain social distancing efforts - by extending both the point of purchase and point of pick-up for campus dining programs.
We hope you enjoyed learning a little about Starship and the robots from Ryan as we welcome them to the NACCU community!
