Bedford County company launches crowdfunding campaign

August 5, 2013

A Bedford County nanotechnology company called NanoTouch™ has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to enhance its fabrication facility which is located in the Center for Advanced Engineering and Research. Through crowdfunding, anyone in the world can support them by purchasing a NanoSeptic product for as little as $15.

Crowdfunding is by definition, “the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet.”

According to Mark Sisson, co-founder of NanoTouch™, the company launched the Indiegogo crowdfunding project to help them fund their Gen III nanotechnology fabrication line in Bedford County.

“It’s a way for companies to fund innovative projects by pre-selling their products,” said Sisson. “Our goal is to raise $75,000 which will fund the purchase of advanced manufacturing equipment and additional lab testing.”
