Centaur and Metamaterial Technologies Inc. Join Endeavor Global Network
Centaur Analytics, Inc. and Metamaterial Technologies Inc. (MTI) join the global network of Endeavor, non-profit supporting high-impact entrepreneurship in 30 countries. The companies were selected during Endeavor Global 79th International Selection Panel, held in Louisville, USA (May 7-9).
Centaur, represented by its Co-founder, President and CEO Sotiris Bantas, reduces post-harvest losses during transportation and storage, which each year are worth $1 trillion, by monitoring agricultural products with wireless sensors. Centaur’s Internet-of-Crops™ platform uses data analytics to predict food spoilage months in advance and prevents infestation by prescribing optimal dosage of pest treatments such as fumigation.
MTI, represented by the founder and CEO George Palikaras, is pioneering a new class of smart materials—that can block, absorb, and amplify light waves at the nanoscale. Within the nascent metamaterials market, MTI is printing nano-structures on flexible film to enable high performance next generation optical devices, including laser protection, energy-efficient light sources, affordable solar panels, and non-invasive medical diagnostics.
