UNB’s Canum Nanomaterials won both the grand prize and the people’s choice award at the 2019 New Brunswick Innovation Foundation’s Breakthru Competition on March 21.

They received $436,000 in cash investments and professional services, which includes funds from both NBIFand Opportunities New Brunswick, and a golden ticket to a Dragon’s Den audition in Toronto.

Canum Nanomaterials has created an environmentally friendly, cost-effective and highly scalable technology that produces fullerenes, which are used in flexible solar cells and as antioxidants in health supplements. Winning this start-up money will allow the Canum team to scale up their production, which is already in high demand.
