Versarien has acquired a majority stake in Cambridge Graphene, a spin-out company from the University of Cambridge established in May 2014 to commercialize graphene inks. Versarien acquired a 85% stake for £180,000 - which values the entire Cambridge Graphene company at £200,000.
Cambridge Graphene develops inks based on graphene and related materials using processes developed at the Cambridge Graphene Center. The spin-out company has commercialized graphene inks for novel technology applications.
Versarien, owner of 2-DTech, says it wants to be the center of the commercial development of graphene in the UK. This latest deal will bring together internationally recognized graphene research at the universities of Manchester (as 2-DTech was spun out of The U of Manchester) and Cambridge.
