“We are thrilled to announce a new add to the FLEEPtech's investor family! EUREKA! Venture SGR,” FLEEP said on its Facebook page.

“We are happy and thankful for the trust of our great investors, all mentors and partners who have supported us on our way but most importantly for our incredible team and their outstanding work in the last months to make this happen.”

FLEEP said the money will help in the company’s development plans and will be used to bring the technology of ‘printed electronics’ to market, reports EU-startups.

FLEEP’s technology implements the intelligent core of flexible electronic applications, by enabling the integration and driving of conformable organic sensors, actuators and power sources. Realized with complementary organic technology, FleepIC features mechanical flexibility and electronic operation with low power consumption, while easy, cost- and energy-efficient manufacturing is guaranteed by manufacturing processes derived from printing.

“The entry of Eureka! will allow us to face the challenges related to the development of printed electronics in a more solid way, with the awareness of having acquired not only capital but also a strategic investor who can certainly help us with his vast knowledge and network of contacts in the deep-tech world,” said Giorgio Dell’Erba, co-founder and CEO of FLEEP Technologies.
