< ICeNd >

We are ICeNd - a newborn startup with an ambition to be the next generation leader in artificial lives (AL). We created sub-25 nm nanofluidic channels, quantum materials, and physics-driven AI as building blocks of artificial lives. Nanofluidics runs water transport in tree, moves muscles in animals, and processes molecules through cellular nanopores. ICeNd aims to commericialise sustainable AL with nanofluidics, quantum materials, and quantum mechanical softwares. The application of AL are molecular processing, on-site molecular diagnostics and therapy, and energy material discovery. This is possible in conjunction with the Nobel prize winning achievements of superresolution optical microscopy and high resolution transmission electron microscopy. 

While our vision of AL is futuristic for the sustainability of humanity on earth and outside earth, the individual building blocks of the AL have highly demanding markets. Our current MVPs Universal Nanodevices or UNanoD enable real-time molecular studies for drug discovery, structural biology, material discovery, and pollution sensing at the precision of single molecule level. UNanoD Fluid is at TRL8 performing real-time single molecule detection with photons and electrons. UNanoD Solid is at TRL6 performing real-time nano-mechano-electrical signals. 

While we are backed up by top notch international knowledge partners, such as University of Cambridge, Harvard University, University of Oxford, and Max Planck Institutes, our local collaborations in The Netherlands with Thermo Fisher Scientific Eindhoven, Leiden University and Utrecht University strengthen our technological and business base in Eindhoven.

Uday Phadke, PhDDr Uday Phadke’s experience spans three key areas: commercial firms enabled by science and technology, academic research and teaching in technology and business, and the design and promotion of national and international innovation initiatives. His primary strength is in creating and delivering vision-based change underpinned by detailed analysis. MA Engineering at Trinity College, Cambridge followed by a PhD at the University of Sussex where he also held an industry-funded Research Fellowship.

Brian Corbett, MBATransformed a geeky, niche, scientific spin-out from Cambridge University, into a global leader for telephony based speech recognition that was ultimately acquired by Microsoft. Entropic was selling speech technology products to a small number of computer scientists in specialist institutions around the world - we had 100% of a niche market with limited growth; re-positioned the company's business strategy to focus on an emerging global opportunity for speech technology in the telephony environment (call centres, automated transaction management and the voiceweb). Along the way, he restructured the company and secured VC funding from top firms in the UK and USA (Amadeus Capital Partners and Oak Investment Partners).

Sumantra Sen, MBASumantra Sen is a senior management executive, with over 25 years of progressive experience in managing global client portfolios and leading strategic transition of investment programs while working with financial organizations such as ABN AMRO and Bank of America. He is a specialist in Responsible Finance, with expertise in harnessing innovation and partnerships for managing complex investment scenarios. In his current roles, he engages with development institutions, government agencies, investors and businesses in advancing best practices in ESG and Impact Investing.
