ABB Technology Ventures
Our journey began in 2017 at Uppsala University, where researcher Dr Mamoun Taher invented Aros Graphene®, starting a mission to take graphene from a novel wonder-material in the lab to a solution for large-scale industrial applications. He formed Graphmatech, joining forces with serial entrepreneur Björn Lindh.
The rise of Graphmatech
In 2019, just our second full year of operation, we:
- grew our team by 83%;
- undertook 28 projects and launched 3 products;
- joined 4 world class research competence centers;
- and opened a 1350sqm research lab and production facility in central Uppsala!
An award-winning enterprise
We have already received several awards, including being listed as one of the 33 Hottest Tech Startup Companies in Sweden according to NyTeknik, and being named Nordic Nanotech Company of the Year in 2018!
We have also already secured the first third of a planned SEK 60 million A-round with support from 4 major external investors.
Technology worth investing in
The path to become Sweden’s next big industrial company may be long, but we believe graphene technology has a vital role to play for a more connected and sustainable future.
With the global graphene market predicted to reach $1.36 billion by 2027, it’s sure to be an amazing journey. We’d love for you to join us.
