Frankfurt am Main / Saarbrücken, 13-12-2012 — / —  Nanotechnology venture capital company Nanostart AG is opening a Frankfurt regional office for Deutscher Verband Nanotechnologie (DV Nano) at its headquarters in the German financial capital. The official documents have been signed by Marco Beckmann, CEO of Nanostart AG, and Dr. Ralph Nonninger, president of Deutscher Verband Nanotechnologie.

Marco Beckmann explains the decision: “We welcome the activities of Deutscher Verband Nanotechnologie. We will not only be able to provide support for the organization’s mission but also benefit from very good, early access to companies that are seeking an experienced VC investor to commercialize a nanotechnological product or process.”

And Dr. Ralph Nonninger, president of Deutscher Verband Nanotechnologie, adds his perspective: “Nanotechnologies are the innovation drivers of numerous industries.
