Next week, at Nanotech Northern Europe in Copenhagen, Anthony Kongats, CEO for Australia-based CAP-XX Ltd., will share lessons learned while developing his company's nano-structured supercapacitors from government laboratory to today's deployment in space-constrained electronics devices worldwide.
Anthony Kongats founded CAP-XX in 1997 to commercialize the supercapacitor technology spawned by joint research done at the Australian government's premier science and research organization - CSIRO - and Kongats' own electronics company, Energy Storage Systems.
Kongats will share his commercialization challenges and his perspective on the global investment environment for nanotechnology. CAP-XX is the only publicly-listed nanotechnology company being profiled.
CAP-XX chose the Alternative Investment Markets (AIM) in London which had supported similar internationally-focused technology companies and other nanotechnology start-ups such as Oxonica.
Kongats will discuss start-up challenges such as attracting venture funding, readying a technology for production, building a patent portfolio, selling a new concept into a new market, preparing for a public offering and ramping manufacturing capacity to meet demand.
