04.10.2016 Swisscom invests CHF 500,000 in the emerging Swiss start-up Nanolive. As winner of the StartUp Challenge, Nanolive completed a one-week long mentor program in the Silicon Valley last week, along with the four other winners. The competition and the trip are being used by Swisscom to select start-ups for investments.
Nanolive has developed a new technology that enables living cells to be explored in three dimensions without damaging them. In comparison with other industry solutions, the process is simple and economical and is carried out using a microscope. The “3D Cell Explorer” will enable progress in medical research, as the effects of drugs on living cells can be tested in real time. Swisscom Ventures believes in the potential of the start-up company and is supporting Nanolive with CHF 500,000 from its Early Stage Fund. “We are looking forward to collaborating with Swisscom. It will contribute to strengthening our product development, enabling us to continue to offer our customers innovative services in the future,” says Yann Cotte, CEO of Nanolive.
