De Metz advises international venture capital consortium lead by b-to-v partners AG on the investment in Dutch technology start-up EFFECT Photonics.


De Metz advised on a venture capital transaction whereby an international consortium of investors headed by Swiss based lead investor b-to-v partners AG, took a Series A shareholding interest in EFFECT Photonics B.V., a Dutch technology start-up based in Eindhoven and active in the field of developing photonic chips (‘photonic integrated circuits’ or ‘PICs’). Photonic chips are currently produced only in limited series, but experts generally expect the possibilities for application of  photonic chips to increase rapidly. Whereas the 20th century was the era of the electron, the 21st century is expected to be the era of the photon. In the expert field of photonics the unprecedented possibilities of modern photonic applications are currently being discovered and developed. Click here for the press release.
