UT spin-off Eurekite teams up with Cottonwood
Eurekite, the first worldwide provider of a new nanotechnology based flexible ceramics, announced today that Cottonwood Euro Technology Funds, an affiliate of the top performing seed stage investor in science based technology start-ups in the US, has closed on founding capital to begin operations in Enschede, The Netherlands.
The technology, initially developed at the Inorganic Materials Science group of MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology (University of Twente), has numerous benefits over current ceramics, in particular that it behaves like paper and can be bent and shaped into any position, and that it is not brittle. Therefore it can be used in many harsh environments without the limitations of currently available to ceramics and also providing unique thermal, electrical, catalytic and filtering characteristics.
