Epishine rocked the Silicon Viking’s finale

6 March, 2018

For the first time Sweden will be represented at the Startup World Cup global finals in San Francisco. Silicon Vikings is partnering with Startup World Cup to choose the winning company that will be chosen to represent Sweden in the finals.

Tonight Silicon Vikings arranged the Swedish final from where the winner goes directly to the Startup World Cup final in San Fransisco. Epishine was celebrated as a top-3 company but was overthrown by “Coala Life” in terms of first place.

Intel says that the main concern the jury had to Epishine was that it sounded too good to be true.

Patent Hackathon

5 March, 2018

Here comes a glimpse of the Epishine team’s everyday life.

Today we gathered for some proactive patent/innovation brainstorming.

It all resulted in six patent ideas to look closer at directly and a number of problems that we should keep our eyes on while they are on their way to potentially patentable solutions.

Thanks Vice President Maroš Šefčovič for listening to us!

23 February, 2018

Earlier this week we were at the EU Commission in Brussels to discuss what the EU can do to best support us as cleantech entrepreneurs together with Vice President Maroš Šefčovič and other cleantech entrepreneurs. It was interesting to hear what the EU is already planning to do to make it easier for us to reach the European market, we are happy that political leaders take our ideas into account and for what the EU is already doing for us for example through the EU accelerator Climate KIC.

Press: We believe in a better world

19 February, 2018

The Swedish bank “Handelsbanken” has published an interview with Epishine’s CEO, Mattias Josephson, in their printed private banking magazine “Conversations” where he states that he believes in a better world, that Epishine’s fully organic solar cells are unique, that it’s important to be passionated about what you do, that he is looking forward to when Epishine’s first large-scale factory for production of organic solar cells is up and running and that its an advantage to be an idealist if you don’t want to go with the big stream.

Press: Epishine breakthrough

8 February, 2018

Right now you can read about a break through in OPV manufacturing by Linköping University in the science press, comercialized by Epishine.

The breakthrough constitutes the basis for our patent-pending solution to manufacture fully organic solar cells in a high-speed roll-to-roll process where two plastic films, covered by the active material, is laminated together. Since only two to three layers are to be printed, the number of defects is lower and the probability that two defects are located exactly opposite each other during the lamination is negligible.

We are seeking a motivated and strategic thinking Technical Salesperson to join the Epishine family with focus on sales to the sensor industry – mainly in Europe, but also some preparatory work for the US and Asian markets.

The first years you will work with our small solar cell (energy harvesting) modules that will replace or extend the lifetime of batteries within the “low power connectivity”-industry. You will start with learning to know the market’s driving forces, continue with connecting with early strategic partners and then building and scaling our customer base.
