A Swiss start-up based on a groundbreaking new technology for high-performance light sources is gaining ground on the Asian and European market. The Nano Fiber Lighting technology is the next thing after LED lighting, with the intensity of more than 100 LEDs distributed in a flexible, hair-thin, extremely bright and focused light. “Basically,” co-founder Yann Tissot says, “we’ve created some kind of super bright and thin Star Wars fiber.” Over the past few years, the technology has quickly raised much interest in the watch, medical and automotive industries of Switzerland, Japan and Europe. The start-up has huge potential and has earned the ‘Best Swiss Start-up’ award for two consecutive years now among hundreds of promising and established startups.
