Leave a Nest Capital Invests in Ichthion


Leave a Nest Group has invested through Leave a Nest Capital Co., Ltd. in Ichthion Limited (Head Office: Staines Upon Thames, England; CEO: Dr. Inty Andrés Grønneberg Ipiales; hereinafter “Ichthion”), a startup from Imperial College London.

Its main business is centred around the Azure System, a technology designed to extract plastic waste from rivers and prevent it from reaching marine environments.

Its relationship with the Leave a Nest Group dates back to 2018 when Ichthion was invited as one of the finalists at TECH PLANTER 2018 UK. Leave a Nest Group has been conducting the TECH PLANTER program in the UK since 2017, to discover, nurture and create an ecosystem for Deep Tech startups. Through this program Leave a Nest has been supporting startups like Ichthion to meet potential business partners and boost their growth.

Leave a Nest Group has decided to invest in Ichthion due to their shared dedication to protect and restore ocean ecosystems to create a future where marine life can flourish and its resources can continue to be responsibly harnessed for generations to come.

With this funding, Ichthion aims to expand its business with a focus on enhancing the capabilities of the Azure System through Japanese Super Factories’ Monozukuri in collaboration with Leave a Nest.

Moving forward, Leave a Nest Group will continue  their efforts to create deep tech solutions addressing marine pollution and contribute to global happiness.
