Platypus: Nanotech Startup Rakes in Federal Money

With a name like Platypus, itís clear that the founders of this nanotechnology start-up possess a quirky sense of humor, to say nothing of the confidence that what they have to offer is sound enough to overcome the off-beat name. Others, at least those in the government grant-giving world, seem to agree. So far, the four-year-old firm has received 12 federal grants worth $7.1 million, which may be more than any other tenant at University Research Park on Madisonís west side.
