Svenska Dagbladet (SvD) writes about Epishine

5 July, 2017

Svenska Dagbladet (SvD) writes an editorial about Epishine and the cluster of organic electronics companies gathered in East Sweden.

Some translated quotes:

“I promise you. A regular working week in Norrköping means more than the political weeks in Almedalen and Järvafältet together.”

“Did you know that Sweden is the world leader in printed electronics? Where we used to etch circuit boards with hazardous chemicals and severe environmental damage, one can now print electronics in machines reminiscent of old paper prints. The product is literally leafy and flexible, manufactured at a quarter of the cost and almost without impact on the environment.”

“And if you list the most promising Swedish entrepreneurs, at least three companies in printed electronics will be in the top layer.” – DP Patterning, Epishine and InviSense.

“All three come from Norrköping, and are part of a local cluster of companies that grow within printed electronics. They will change your everyday lives more than Social Democratic Minister Mikael Damberg’s all seminars during politics week.”

SvD is a daily multi–channel newspaper with Sweden’s second largest circulation per day.

Interview with Emma at the 33-listan final

5 April, 2017

Yesterday Epishine was presented as one of the winners of 33-listan at Münchenbryggeriet in Stockholm. The list is based on over 200 nominations from companies all over Sweden, from Malmö in the South to Skellefteå in the North and lists Sweden’s 33 hottest tech companies 2017.

Our Emma was interviewed by a camera team. In short she says:

It feels great to be on the 33-listan. It proves that not only do we believe in our technology but also other competent people. 

Epishine develops organic solar cells, based on research the past 20 years which now have reached a level where we can produce them for real. We print small plastic pieces that can replace the batteries in IoT-devices like sensors.

The future looks bright. Say in five years, then we have built a factory that prints photovoltaic with a corresponding capacity as a nuclear plant every month. That feels great!
