Prototype development is currently taking place at the Center for Entrepreneurial Innovation, a community-based business incubator located at GateWay Community College in Phoenix. Initially SiO2 Nanotech will produce prototypes of vision-protection products for several major corporations, including sporting goods manufacturers.
SiO2 Nanotech is one of 10 startups in the first cohort of the Furnace Technology Transfer Accelerator’s Arizona Furnace accelerator, which provides seed funding, office space and access to top industry mentors in order to commercialize discoveries made in Arizona laboratories. Arizona Furnace is a statewide public-private partnership among the Arizona Commerce Authority, BioAccel, Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, University of Arizona, Thunderbird School of Global Management, Arizona Technology Enterprises and Dignity Health Arizona.
SiO2 Nanotech and the other Arizona Furnace companies will debut their products at the first-ever Arizona Furnace Demo Day June 5 at ASU SkySong.
