  • Vincent Caprio's Blog Evolving Innovations » Blog Archive » NanoBusiness Interview Series – Hart and Warwick of NanoInk
    100 to 300 microns Hart said So they are learning state of the art fabrication techniques We re not just teaching them how to operate the tools we re teaching them skills that can translate to any type of job including servicing the equipment and lab technician he said So this is not a tough sell What is tough though is for schools to find funding to purchase the system which runs in the ballpark of 300 000 or less Honestly one of the concerning points for us is there seems to be at least from a funding perspective much greater access to funds internationally than there is in the United States Hart said That is why NanoProfessor is having slightly more success internationally Hart said they had just sold five systems in Sao Paulo Brazil with five to 10 more in demand before the end of the year Colombia has eight of their systems and there is interest everywhere from Turkey to China to India It s a competition for worker training that the United States could end up losing if it does not reorganize its priorities We continue to invest in research which is extremely important whereas the rest of the world takes that research and then they start investing in the workforce that s going to be able to implement it Hart said In Suzhou China for example they re launching what they are calling the Nano Polis project that will train 30 000 workers in nanotechnology It is a commitment to taking research and turning it into workforce development that Hart does not see happening so far in the United States The solution he said is for commercial companies to approach their local undergraduate institutions and tell them that they need their help in building the new nanotech enabled workforce Companies cannot pay too many 90 000 a year Ph D s but they can hire educated nano savvy employees at 50 000 a year Do that and the whole business model has changed he said It s about getting the technology to the attention of the masses training them opening up their minds to what is available he said We have an opportunity for leadership but if we don t act quickly we re going to lose it To date Hart said NanoProfessor has sold 25 systems and could end the year with anywhere between 40 to 50 additional systems sold While Hart is helping to prepare the future nanotech workforce Warwick is helping to transition nanotech out of the academic lab and into the commercial world And he sees immediate opportunity in biotech When Warwick joined the company about three years ago NanoInk had a number of tools that were largely aimed at life scientists for their chemistry or nanoengineering labs Warwick set off on a continuing mission to show biotech companies that they can benefit too They ve been featuring substrates on which you can grow living cells then treat each row to

  • Vincent Caprio's Blog Evolving Innovations » Blog Archive » NanoBusiness provides review of Nanotech Commercialization Conference – April 3-5 – Durham, NC
    seeing regulatory activity for several important nanomaterials nanosilver CNTs nanoclays under either TSCA or FIFRA the Federal Insecticide Fungicide and Rodenticide Act with final decisions and rulemaking expected soon But many states think federal regulation has not been adequate and are considering their own actions California notably has required data submissions in preparation for developing rules for several classes of nanomaterials Internationally the French have instituted a mandatory reporting scheme for any material made or imported into France including nanomaterials The EC may try to preempt this rule but there is precedent for it If the final rule takes effect as expected in 2013 many will find the reporting requirements onerous From the energy panel we continued to hear how nanotechnology is a key enabler in the drive to re invent our energy production delivery and storage infrastructure With the energy picture changing rapidly due to the economic situation in the key European market aggressive manufacturing subsidies from China and an unexpected plethora of inexpensive natural gas our speakers emphasized technologies that can be near term contributors to improving the efficiency of current products and reducing their manufacturing costs over more speculative disruptive technologies that will need longer development times NanoBCA s good friends Scott Livingston and Scott Rickert closed out day one of the conference Scott Livingston Chairman CEO of Livingston Securities is thrilled with the provisions of the recent Jobs Act legislation which reduce the compliance burden that has been hindering smaller companies since the introduction of Sarbannes Oxley This fits right in with his agenda to help nanotech companies raise 30 40 million in funding to scale up production and fill early orders ultimately by bringing back the small Initial Public Offering Meanwhile Livingston Securities is finding its way into the underwriting syndicate for promising IPOs that are managing to come to market even in today s distorted conditions with a restricted group of hedge funds buying 90 of the shares no matter who leads the offering Scott reminded us that both words are important in the term public financing Properly done deals provide financing for new companies and public opportunities for wealth creation Scott thinks the Jobs Act may be the death knell for business as usual on Wall Street He has seen a tenfold increase in companies that want to talk about IPOs in last 2 months and thinks a new Wall Street model is coming with a greater role for a large number of smaller investors Scott Rickert President Co Founder CEO of NanoFilm shared his strategic thinking on intellectual property protection team building location of facilities and niche finding Nanofilm s IPR strategy relies heavily on trade secrets Like Coca Cola Scott believes in secret sauces They fine tune their products for specific markets and even individual customers and manufacture in just a few locations currently in the U S and India Most of you know that NanoFilm has had great success with their coatings for eyewear They continue to innovate in this market with major new products about to appear from leading optical firms Scott is also justly proud of the company s coatings for high end commercial dinnerware used in many fine restaurants This product reduces scuffing and scratchmarks from silverware and cleans easily with low phosphate environmentally friendly detergents Plus it is made from plant derived materials with excellent safety profiles Scott s remarks on company staffing also got the audience s attention He noted that a company s needs change as it matures so leadership needs to be changed every 5 years or so In his case he has been able to fire and rehire himself as CEO several times re inventing the role and adjusting the supporting staff as necessary But whether or not the names at the top of the letterhead change the leadership team must be ready to adapt Day two of the conference began with Doug Jamison s review of Harris Harris Group s activities over the last year As Chairman and CEO Doug learned much about patient investing in 2007 2010 with no exits among the H H portfolio H H had a very successful year in 2011 with 5 liquidity events They are the following 1 Solazyme IPO http solazyme com 2 NeoPhotonics IPO http www neophotonics com 3 BioVex acquired by Amgen http www biovex com 4 Innovalight acquired by DuPont http www2 dupont com Photovoltaics en US products services silicon inks silicon inks html 5 Crystal IS acquired but not publicly disclosed http www crystal is com Harris Harris expects to see 12 15 more portfolio exits in the next three years Doug had an interesting perspective from H H s analysis of venture capital funded nanotech companies they seem to be about two years behind comparable microcap companies in their development VC companies are slower than public markets in resetting their valuations but it s coming Alternatively VC s need to justify current valuations by doing more to build company value Doug pointed out that the investors and bankers who stick with new public markets are almost always specialists not representatives of the big firms On the product side he counseled nanotech companies to think of the Dows and Duponts of the world as customers not competitors Nanomech founder and Chief Technology Officer Ajay Malshe followed Doug with another keynote address Ajay s mantra is less is more NanoMech s products use less natural resources while giving the customer more functionality The company draws on local and regional strengths supplementing research and entrepreneurship skills with a focus on identifying great people and then finding the positions where they are best utilized This goes for business talent as well as science and engineering talent In terms of product areas NanoMech has stayed out of popular areas like solar and batteries not for a lack of new ideas but to avoid the crowd they prefer to find market sectors where they can be the first actor secure strong intellectual property protection and
