Edwin Berkhout, Director Lucros Investment BV: “We are very pleased to be given the opportunity to invest in such an exciting, disruptive new technology. With this investment in MicroShade, Lucros Investment is vastly becoming a major player in the clean-tech segment”.
MicroShade is a Danish clean-tech company founded in 2003 as a spin-off from the Danish Technological Institute. MicroShade has developed a passive membrane that, when put in between a 2- or 3-layer glass, provides optimal solar shading. At the same time it ensures the best possible view out and the right amount of useful daylight. Together, these parameters raise the quality of the indoor climate significantly.
Laurens Sorenson, CEO MicroShade A/S: “Using Lucros’ investment, MicroShade will initiate further commercialization of its products and support the R&D development activities. Furthermore, Lucros will open up its global network to help speed up worldwide market penetration”.
