High number of investors attracted by nanotechnology
We are happy to communicate the successful closing of the nanotion financing round with a total of 1.2 million CHF. nanotion, an ETH Zurich spin-off, is the first player worldwide to develop an innovative technology to fully characterize nanoparticles in liquid products. This technology permits one to monitor the quality and security of nano-enabled consumer products while optimizing production processes. nanotion will commercialize this patent-pending technology by producing and globally distributing portable devices, as well as service measurements.
We believed in the team of nanotion right from the onset due to its solid combination of business acumen, technical know-how and experienced lead investor. With nanotechnology rapidly becoming one of the most influential developments in all areas of daily life, nanotion is on the cutting edge as the first company worldwide to allow nanoparticle characterization directly in the industrial process.
nanotion not only used the investiere platform to raise funds - we supported Bartjan and Christopher in managing the financing round. This allowed nanotion to concentrate on its core business of technology development and to providing its nanoparticle characterization services to several customers in Switzerland.
The strong interest of our investor community is a clear indication for the current attractiveness of nanotion's technology, making this round one of the most popular rounds so far. In the past, we already co-funded Attolight, another nano-tech start-up that raised a similar degree of interest.
"We are very pleased with this strong signal of trust from our wide range of investors," said nanotion CEO Christopher Latkoczy. "Completing this financing round is a very important milestone for us. We are now able to continue focusing on further development of our pre-serial product and to expand our team to position nanotion in the growing market. Nanotechnology is one of the most important developments for the future and we are proud to be a part of it."
