Yury Gogotsi, Trustee Chair Professor, was quoted in a December 24 article in Financial Times.
The article described a recent strategy in which start-up companies are partnering with larger corporations in order to support their development, rather than seeking large amounts of start-up funding from banks and investors. Y-Carbon, a company founded by Prof. Gogotsi and Ranjan Dash, Ph.D. '07, is one such startup. It has relationships with BAE Systems and Arkema. For more information on Y-Carbon, see www.y-carbon.us.
