August, 30 2023 siOPTICA closes new financing round in the seven-digit range

siOP­TICA, a com­pany spe­cial­ized in optics and a lead­ing sup­plier of switch­able pri­vacy solu­tions for cars, lap­tops, tablets, mobile phone and pay­ment ter­mi­nals, closed a new financ­ing round in the seven-digit range.

As new investors, Busi­ness angel Thomas Philip­piak and ELAS Tech­nolo­gies Invest­ment could be won. Com­ple­mented was this financ­ing round by the cur­rent share­holder and lead investor bm|t beteili­gungs­man­age­ment thürin­gen gmbh. In the search for new invest­ment, the siOP­TICA man­age­ment team was sup­ported by ven­ture forum neckar e.V.

The new invest­ment will give siOP­TICA the oppor­tu­nity to drive and accel­er­ate the launch of the new siOP­TICA tech­nol­ogy “siCURE”. With siCURE, siOP­TICA is the first to offer a switch­able pri­vacy solu­tion in the mar­ket that also can be applied with OLED displays.

The solu­tion has already been demon­strated at two inter­na­tional trade shows in Asia and USA, where it gen­er­ated big inter­est with poten­tial customers.

With this new tech­nol­ogy and the pos­si­bil­ity to also apply it on OLED dis­plays, siOP­TICA will have the chance to con­sid­er­ably increase its mar­ket share in the mar­ket of lap­tops, mobile devices, and tablet PCs.  Apart from this, there are already numer­ous requests from auto­mo­tive customers.

“I decided to invest in siOP­TICA, because I‘m con­vinced by the huge cus­tomer ben­e­fit of the siOP­TICA tech­nol­ogy. The con­ver­sa­tions with the group of share­hold­ers and man­age­ment have encour­aged me to become a mem­ber of this dynamic team” under­lined  Thomas Philippiak.

Torsten Vahrenkamp from  ELAS Tech­nolo­gies Invest­ments empha­sized: „ Already at our first meet­ing with the siOP­TICA man­age­ment we could feel the pas­sion with which siOP­TICA devel­ops and mar­kets its tech­nol­ogy. We are happy to sup­port this great team as investors.”

“Dur­ing the last cou­ple of month, we could see how strong the demand for the siOP­TICA tech­nol­ogy has increased. We are happy that this new invest­ment will enable siOP­TICA to suc­cess­fully launch the new tech­nol­ogy in the mar­ket” added Kevin Reader, CEO of bm‑t.
