Following last year’s €4.1 million investment, Aito has raised a further €1 million to kickstart 2022 – this time from the start-up and scale-up team of Dutch banking giant Rabobank. The additional funding will enable the team to accelerate the development and distribution of our award-winning finger-sensing and haptic-feedback solution to several leading consumer technology brands in 2022.
Big plans for 2022
CEO, Nedko Ivanov, comments: “Rabobank has provided us with additional investment to help support our plans to further commercialise our award-winning patented technology with other world leading consumer technology brands.”
Transformative haptic technology
Aito’s fully scalable technology helps brands transform the design and user experience of consumer technology devices. Its integrated solutions offer the largest, most accurate and richest haptic experience on the market today, as well as the industry’s slimmest finger-sensing and haptic-feedback solution (less than 2.4mm), and ultra-localised haptic feedback for pinpoint precision. This has already been built into laptop touchpads but can be applied to a wide range of further consumer electronics devices such as computer accessories, displays, gaming devices, and AR/VR solutions.
Robbert Lut of Rabobank was keen to emphasise the company’s support for leading Dutch start-ups such as Aito: “Aito’s ground-breaking and patented technology offers new design options to create more compact and versatile laptops, accessories, displays and other devices delivering new tactile experiences. The company helps consumer technology brands differentiate products in highly competitive markets, offering significant return on investment. This investment demonstrates our confidence in the company’s current product portfolio and ambitious further growth plans.”
