During 2022 we welcomed three new shareholders Voima Ventures, Almi Green Tech Invest and Klimatet Invest through the new emission of shares in the summer, that also saw follow-up investments from KTH Holding and LiU Invest. We are thankful to you all for your support and belief in the company, and we are fortunate to have shareholders that believe in the company’s mission and want to support us on our journey. We would also like to give a special thank you to our board of directors, who have supported the company throughout the year. Being a small operative team, your coaching, advice, and even operative work when the company has been in need, has been invaluable for helping us take the company forward.
We are also very thankful for the support and grants we have received from the Swedish Energy Agency (Energimyndigheten) and Vinnova during the year.
We want to send out a special thank you to our incubator, Lead, who has supported us through the year with expert coaching and guidance when needed and Paper Province for their support and engagement. Of course, we wouldn’t be where we are today without the researchers at Linköping University and KTH (Royal Institue of Technology). During 2023, we look forward to seeing what our new membership and collaboration with Synerleap by ABB holds in place for us.
During the year Sanna, Linus and Alexandra have joined the team, and the determination, knowledge, and hard work they have given to Cellfion during the year has been inspiring. We will also be welcoming 2 new employees and a consultant to the company after the Christmas break, to strengthen our commercial and development teams.
2022 has set the groundwork for 2023. We have received vital data back from partners and customers that has given us a focus for the product development and that has now taken the technology to a place where we aim to increase prototyping capacity during the beginning of 2023. The test results during the year have now led us to the preparation of our 3rd patent application for the CNF membranes therefore, strengthening our IP portfolio and future market position.
We look very much forward to entering 2023 on a strong note and we will keep you updated throughout the year with the progress towards our milestones. Make sure to follow our journey on LinkedIn and keep an eye on our website- we have some interesting news to share with you in the coming months.
The Cellfion team wishes you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 🎄✨
