CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Azumo, a breakthrough display technology company, today announced that it has raised $30 million in new financing led by venture capital firm Anzu Partners with additional funding from SABIC Ventures, VectoIQ, Dipalo Ventures and Energy Foundry. This round of funding will accelerate Azumo’s international expansion, increase its manufacturing capabilities and help launch new products featuring its low power LCD 2.0TM technology.
As demand for eco-friendly solutions within electronics continues to grow, Azumo offers a sunlight-readable, reflective LCD 2.0 technology with up to 10x the energy savings compared to traditional, power-hungry backlit LCDs. Azumo’s technology is intrinsically eye safe, extremely thin, and is opening new applications for reflective LCDs across consumer, medical, industrial, and educational markets.
“Our LCD 2.0 technology removes the restrictions around how and where we can interact with our devices, and for how long, because it helps displays to sip a fraction of the power and utilize available surrounding light to conserve battery life,” said Mike Casper, CEO of Azumo. “This new financing will allow us to expand sales and applications engineering support globally, grow our international team and continue to deliver on the promises of LCD 2.0 across a variety of industries.”
