Pixelligent Technologies Closes $2 Million in Equity Financing: Funding to Support Current and Pending Nanotechnology Development

College Park, MD | Posted on May 28th, 2009

"To raise capital for a development stage company in the current economic environment is a true testament to the tremendous potential and importance of our technology," said Craig Bandes, CEO of Pixelligent Technologies.

The investors include sophisticated local angel investors, a well known west coast-based tech entrepreneur and the company's management team. The proceeds were used for costs related to completing the company's reorganization and will also be used to help fund current development initiatives and government programs going forward.

"We were one of the first to recognize the potential of using nanotechnology in critical optical lithography applications for the semiconductor industry and we are now expanding this technology into other related fields," said Greg Cooper, PhD, President of Pixelligent. "This funding, in combination with the support we have received from federal grant programs, has enabled us to support our world class nanotechnology team and move our technology closer to the market."
