We are delighted to announce that the Parkwalk Opportunities fund has completed an investment in Bodle Technologies Limited, following a previous investment by the University of Oxford Innovation Fund .

Bodle have developed a novel, smart material for use in low-energy high-resolution displays and glazing. Bodle’s display device offerings offer high flexibility, ultra-high resolution, and very low energy consumption, making a highly attractive proposition for the global display market.

The invention, by a team led by Professor Harish Bhaskaran and his postdoctoral researcher Peiman Hosseini at the University’s Department of Materials, attracted attention from industry following the publication of a paper in Nature in 2014. The BBC highlighted the technology.

The funding round was led by Oxford Sciences Innovation, the investment company established to provide capital and scaling expertise to Oxford spin-outs.
