The industrial startup beat out nine other candidates in the finals of Austria’s largest startup competition. UpNano has developed and patented high-resolution 3D printing for micro-components. “Everything is becoming smaller and smaller and more powerful. This also comprises a challenge for manufacturing industry”, stated founder Denise Mandt. “We can print a castle on a sharpened pencil tip,” she added. An UpNano print costs about half a million euros. The method is particularly interesting for medical technology, because living cells can also be incorporated.
