Grenoble-based startup Arnano, which has traditionally addressed the B2B market, raised more than €45,000 for its Fahrenheit2451 project from 329 donors in 22 countries on Kickstarter, putting its name on the map in consumer markets.
A 2009 spinoff of Leti, Arnano manufactures and engraves sapphire memory capable of withstanding all sorts of abuse, including temperatures of up to 1,300°C (2,451°F). Now the company is reaching out to individual consumers with its 2.5 cm to 10 cm diameter sapphire “nanoforms,” upon which text, photographs, and other images can be engraved.
This project, which also provided valuable market insights, supports Arnano’s plans to speed up its development. The company is now working on delivering the Kickstarter orders to Farenheit2451 subscribers before Christmas.
