Qnami recently announced the closing of a $2.6 million seed
round led by Venture Capital fund Quantonation and further
supported by investiere, ZKB Start-up Finance and the High
Tech Gruenderfond. The funds will support the market entry of

Founded in Geneva, Qnami has developed a platform for the
analysis of magnetic materials at the nanoscale, based on a
proprietary quantum technology. "In modern electronics, the
magnetic properties of materials play a crucial role. Yet, they
are not always well understood and even less well-controlled, at
