Venture Kick, a private consortium that aims to push forward young entrepreneurs with high-potential business ideas, has selected Perovskia, a nascent perovskite-based solar cells company, to receive CHF40,000 (around USD$45,170).
Perovskia is a young startup that has developed a digital printing technology to fabricate efficient and stable perovskite solar cells with custom design capability. The fabrication techniques they developed are reportedly highly efficient and flexible, which could reduce the production cost considerably, even for customized items. The team plans to use its technology to cater to the diverse needs of Internet of Things, electronic goods, sensors, and ultimately designer solar tiles industries.
The Venture Kick Funds will be used to acquire research projects with prototyping for clients, promotions and IP. This will also help in getting new funds from agencies like the EU, and further develop the technology for the current customers.
