Think small, dream big

Abstract:
Three Finnish companies are on the forefront of new life-changing nanotechnologies.

One of the most exciting industries that could dramatically change our lives in the future is nanotechnology, or technology on the atomic or molecular scale. Finland has long been supportive of new technologies, and one way it encourages young nanotech companies is the new microclustering program.

"Picosun has been part of from the very beginning," says Pekka Reinikainen, Communications Director of the nanotech company. "We are an integral part of all activities of the Finnish nanocluster and find this cooperation extremely useful. The support that we get from projects like is of utmost importance for our work both today and in the future."

The program aims to support the commercial utilisation of nanosurface-related know-how. The aim of the microclustering projects of Otaniemi Marketing in general is to create lively technological ecosystems that generate world class research and innovations, build start-ups into fast growing high-tech companies and to attract investments and global technology actors to Otaniemi. The program is hosted in cooperation with Culminatum. Below we profile three of the most promising companies in the nanotechnology industry.
