Nanofixit Ventures and SEED Group Announce Strategic Partnership to Deliver Nanotechnology Solutions to the UAE.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates – 02 July 2020 - The Private Office of Sheikh Saeed bin Ahmed Al Maktoum and Nanofixit Ventures have entered into a 3-year partnership agreement through His Royal Highness company and strategic arm, SEED Group, to help fight the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) by nanotechnology solutions as the country moves forward towards the 3rd quarter of the year.
Nanofixit began in Singapore in 2013 as a research and development company dedicated to the practical application of nanotechnology and moved to the Philippines in 2014 due to its strategic location for shipping and trade. It then became a pioneer in the field of screen protection for electronic surfaces and developed several products for phone and tablet screen protection against scratches. With its nanotechnology advances, Nanofixit launched a telephone screen insurance product “You Break We Fix” through Nanofixit Insurance LTD, a fully regulated insurance company that is fully covered by Lloyds of London. The success of its screen protection gave rise to a lifestyle series that includes protection for surfaces such as camera lenses, eyeglasses, visors, and more.
The amazing benefits of Nanotechnology, formulated as a solution, produced an antibacterial characteristic that the company capitalized on in the production of the world’s first Antibacterial Gadget Wipe. Much attention was paid to the technology due to the use of the mechanical process rather than the chemical dehydration that completely wipes out bacteria and most viruses from any electronic handheld gadget. Unlike normal ethanol-based protections, which are highly flammable, Nanofixit is completely organic and therefore non-toxic and safe.
The CEO and founder of Nanofixit, Kristian Helgesen of Norwegian descent, saw an opportunity to develop products based on needs and demands with regard to current situations. His vision of deploying products that address the surface protection of electronic gadgets has shifted to the development of antibacterial and virus-removing defense lines that are particularly beneficial in many important ways during this time of the pandemic. He said, “in this time of global crisis, the only way to solve this puzzle is if we help each other and give back to the community which we love the most.” He has vowed to help and carry out non-stop research to further improve every Nanofixit product that would be deployed for the greater good of the many.
Through this partnership, Nanofixit Ventures will work hand-in-hand with The Private Office of Sheikh Saeed bin Ahmed Al Maktoum to help the UAE government combat this deadly disease as the country moves forward to the third quarter of the year. The Nanofixit Defense Line will be introduced into the territory of the UAE and the whole GCC under the guidance of SEED Group. This initiative is expected to deliver the best product solution through volume deployment, research and development, and strict compliance that will aid the already established safety protocols laid by the UAE government.
“We are very excited to work with Nanofixit and see the rapid progress in eliminating the virus in the UAE”, said Hisham Al Gurg, CEO of SEED Group and The Private Office of Sheikh Saeed bin Ahmed Al Maktoum. “What is even more important here is the innovative approach of its solution that addresses the root of the problem, that is, the things we use in our daily lives — and that is of the utmost importance in this time of the pandemic.”
Included in the line of Nanofixit Defense are the Nanofixit antibacterial gadget wipes, multipurpose wipes, and Mr. Nano Aerosol disinfectant sprays that will provide a one-stop fogging service to both commercial and residential premises to ensure that homes and businesses are protected for 30 days. The introduction of nanotechnology into sanitation protocols in the GCC will leave impacting benefits, as the formulation is now stronger, safer, and more effective, leaving a lasting impact on every application it serves.
Nanofixit Inc. is a company with worldwide distribution of an advanced and innovative liquid screen protector based on Nanotechnology. Nanofixit is working with some of the top Nanotechnology labs in the world developing several new and innovative products within the space of Surface Protection. We introduced our first retail product in 2015 – a first of its kind, solvent-free, and completely organic Liquid Screen Protector for cell phones and tablets. Today Nanofixit has a whole range of products with various benefits such as ultra scratch-resistant, anti-bacterial, anti-cell phone radiation, and water repellent, just to name a few.
