This month, we secured a further €6 million investment from investors – our largest figure to date. Supported by current investors KBC Focus Fund, FORWARD.One and Innovation Industries, as well as individual high-net-worth investors, the fresh funding round will strongly aid our efforts to become the market leader in finger sensing and haptic touch solutions.
Extending our reach
Following last year’s successful deployment of our haptic touch solution with a major global laptop manufacturer, we are perfectly poised to reach new customers and into more laptop haptics applications.
Our patented technology delivers the most accurate finger sensing and haptic touch solution on the market, enabling consumer electronics manufacturers to fashion an engaging, memorable and seamless consumer experience. The technology can also be finetuned to a user’s specific preferences and simulates real world sensations such as virtual buttons with edge effects, sliders for volume controls and scrolling, spring effects and more.
Our CEO, Nedko Ivanov, comments: “This additional funding round will help us capitalise on the significant interest in haptics across the consumer electronics market. As the technology matures, it continues to be applied to a wider number of products, delivering new and engaging experiences and providing product differentiation for OEMs. Companies that deploy Aito’s haptic solutions can create slimmer designs and enhance the user experience with zero compromise in terms of product performance.”
Rudi Severijns of KBC Focus Fund adds: “Aito’s world-leading finger sensing and haptic touch technology provides the smartest and slimmest solution on the market. As the opportunities to deploy haptic technology grow, the company is perfectly placed to deploy its patented technology more widely in the consumer electronics market. This further investment demonstrates our belief in the market and reaffirms our commitment to Aito’s ongoing success.”
