Our idea Lucero, has reached the semi-final for the SPIE Start-up challenge, where will pitch in front of a jury at Photonics West in San Francisco, CA, USA on the 4th of February 2020.
Lucero will compete, among other 41 semifinalists, for cash prizes and business support.
In addition, Lucero was awarded one of the three Early Stage Entrepreneurship Travel Grants to attend the semi-final.
The start-up is aiming to make cutting-edge laser technology easy to use and available to anyone by combining it with commercial microscope. The product and software combo utilizes optical tweezers in a brand-new way – and bridges the gap between physics and other scientific fields that would greatly benefit from easier access to this tool.
In December, Lucero was ranked among the best 5 business ideas in West Sweden.
Team components: Christopher Jacklin, Rich Zapata Rosas, Felix Mossberg, Falko Schmidt, Alejandro Diaz Tormo and Martin Mojica-Benavides.
