We have recently made a follow-on investment into Aqdot on behalf of the Parkwalk Opportunities EIS Fund and the University of Cambridge Enterprise Fund III.

Aqdot is a spin-out from the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge and was founded in late 2012. Its proprietary technology introduces an innovative, simple method for manufacturing structures in the millimetre and nanometre range that are useful for encapsulating valuable cargos. The novelty of the technology was described by the founders in a publication in Science.

Aqdot’s proprietary platform technology and know-how enables valuable active products to be protected, delivered and chemically programmed to release where and when required. It has the potential to be game-changing in a wide range of industries, including household products such as detergents, fragrances, agrochemicals, composites, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, food, paint, personal products and cosmetics.
