Funding Your Nano Startup
Miles Wright
CEO, Xanofi

our country has well-defined areas where there's just more money and opportunities for new technology companies. States like Texas, Ohio, and even Oklahoma seem to be outpacing my home state of North Carolina when it comes to political leaders realizing the critical importance of seed stage companies in the lifecycle of job creation.

So what are your options if you don't live in Silicon Valley? What are the pros and cons of different strategies that help to minimize under-capitalization?

Introducing XanoShear-A New Nanofiber Platform
Stephanie Stone

Okay, I'll admit in advance this will be the most self-serving column I ever write for Nanotech Now because I want to talk about Xanofi's new platform for making nanofibers. In future columns I'll talk about raising money, finding partners, IP issues and all the challenges of innovating in an infantile market.

For starters, it's the world's only nanofiber production platform that occurs exclusively in liquids. Starting with most any soluble polymer, fibers are formed in milliseconds when inserted into a stream of viscous liquid. The resulting nanofiber-filled slurry can either be processed on a conveyor belt to remove the liquids or collected directly into containers for direct integration into other wet laying processes. It's both an elegant and robust platform that has lots of potential applications.
