Wenger Vieli: Nexenic raises 1.8 million for series production of Steasy®

Nexenic, the foodtech start-up, has just closed its oversubscribed financing round of CHF 1.8 Million to start and accelerate the serial production and market entry of their portable mini-steamer Steasy®.

The Swiss company has developed a portable mini-steamer the size of a standard lunch box, and they’ve called it Steasy®. The product is soon to start serial production and enter the market. With this successful funding round, its founders are gearing up for their invention’s entrance onto a wider stage. Claudio Ruiz, Reto Muhl and Johannes Hofer, the founders of the Winterthur-based startup, originally developed Steasy to simplify the everyday lives of students and employees. The device allows hungry users to heat up their meals gently and efficiently  – no microwave, oven or power socket needed. What began as an idea during their studies at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) is now in preparation for the serial production.
