8power Limited, the Cambridge University spin out, focused on commercialising vibration energy harvesting for wireless sensors and Internet of Things devices, is pleased to announce a move to the Allia Future Business Centre in Cambridge UK.
Antony Rix, 8power CEO said “Our move to the Future Business Centre will allow us to recruit further staff and accelerate our product development. We have taken enough office space for our expanding team and are delighted to secure workshop space for development, manufacturing and testing of our cutting-edge energy harvesting and wireless technologies”. The Future Business Centre is located at the heart of the Cambridge technology community and is adjacent to Cambridge Science Park.
Earlier this year 8power received approximately US$1m in seed funding from IP Group plc, the University of Cambridge Enterprise Fund III, managed by Parkwalk Advisors, and Cambridge Enterprise, the commercial arm of Cambridge University. Antony commented “The investment will enable us to move quickly from prototypes to product, firstly for trials and then volume deployments.”
