We are delighted to announce that the Parkwalk Opportunities Fund and the University of Cambridge Enterprise Funds V and VI, managed by Parkwalk, have participated in the first major financing round of Flusso, the University of Cambridge spin-out which has developed an innovative high-performance gas flow sensor.

Flusso is a 2018 spin-out from the High Voltage Microelectronics and Sensors lab at the University of Cambridge Engineering Department. The lab has a successful track record of commercialising innovation and two of the founders, Florin Udrea and Julian Gardner, were behind the success of Cambridge CMOS Sensors; a Cambridge spin out in an adjacent technology that was backed by Parkwalk and Cambridge Enterprise to a successful trade sale exit in 2016.

The Flusso flow sensor uses a thin hot tungsten wire embedded in a CMOS wafer to measure the flow rate of a range of gases through the device. Its unique, and patented, material and design configuration mean the sensor should produce a step change in performance compared to existing flow rate sensor solutions
