The Lausanne-based hightech company Attolight raised an undisclosed amount in a series C financing round to which investors from the investiere-community contributed CHF 580’000.
The Lausanne-based hightech company builds microscopes to detect defects in semiconductor materials during the production process accurately and in real-time, saving manufacturers valuable time and resources. In addition, Attolight’s proprietary technology is being employed for research purposes in such areas as LED, photovoltaic (solar) cells and semiconductors.
Apart from securing a significant amount in this round, investiere brought an investor on board with +20 years experience in the semiconductor industry. He invested a 6-figure sum and is putting his global network at Attolight’s disposal as well as assisting the company in an advisory capacity.
