So far 2013 has been a great year for MINATEC start-ups: five were selected to receive funding under the French government’s innovative new business stimulus package.
INAC is behind one of the start-ups, LXRepair, which makes diagnostic tests that can be used to develop personalized cancer treatment protocols. The four others were spun off from Leti: Avalun, which has developed portable multi-measurement diagnostic devices to monitor chronically ill patients; Primo 1 D, which creates electronic functions on plastic or textile threads; Elmess, which produces complex objects using mineral materials; and Oled4life, which supplies organic LEDs for signage and control panels.
Last year Elmess and Oled4Life won funding under the 2012 First Step Challenge—a testimony to the Challenge’s ability to spot and incubate the brightest new ideas.
