Tech Coast Angels Fund Startup Developing Shock-Absorbing Nano Particles

AgileNano, a San Diego startup that was conceived doing research on energy-absorbing nano-composites for use in bumpers, helmets and body armor, said today it got seed funding from the Tech Coast Angels. The technology is used to minimize blunt-force trauma injuries among military service men and women and to increase comfort and protection in sporting equipment such as shoes and helmets. The amount of angel funding was less than $500,000, but CEO Doug Giese says that’s enough funding to complete product development and hit other milestones for the next year or so.
