Episode 11

Mamoun Taher on Graphamtechs’ origin story

Published on: 23rd September, 2022

In the last episode, Mahmoun Taher explained what Graphene is and dove more into the details of what they're doing at Graphmatech to accelerate commercial application. Like many Deep Tech companies, Graphmatech started based on research at University. In this case, Mahmoun's research as a PostDoc at Uppsala University lead to him starting Graphmatech. But similarly to Jacinto from Peafowl Photovoltaics, he was a researcher with no previous entrepreneurial experience and in search of lab space and approval by his supervisor. Continuing our conversation from the last episode, he explained his first steps when noticing that his research might be economically attractive.

About the Podcast

Deep Tech Stories
A podcast making deep tech accessible by highlighting creators and pulling their tech from the lab into the real world.
What do you need to start a nuclear power start-up? How do you build a company from cutting-edge research? And how do you convince Venture Capitalists to support your quantum computing company?
Deep tech companies are based on significant scientific or engineering challenges, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, nuclear fission and every other crazy thing you can and cannot yet imagine.

My name is Philipp. Currently, I am a PhD student in theoretical physics and in Deep Tech Stories, I explore the tech and stories behind exciting start-up founders and researchers in the deep tech space.
