About Nanalyze

Mission: To educate and inform investors about disruptive technologies such that investment capital is directed towards those technologies that make the world a better place.


Founded in 2003, Nanalyze started as a forum where investors could share information on companies involved in the nanotechnology space. Over time Nanalyze grew to one of the biggest investment forums in the technology space with 1900 different technology investing topics. In 2004 when nanotechnology became an emerging theme among investors, Nanalyze was key in distributing objective information that helped differentiate real nanotechnology companies from “pump and dump” OTC stocks that attempted to capitalize on the hype surrounding nanotechnology.

Nanalyze Today

Many years later, Nanalyze has moved from a forum format to a publishing format so that our readers can better access information that will help them make more informed investment decisions. We have also expanded outside of just nanotechnology to include additional disruptive technologies such as 3D printing, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, AR/VR, life science technologies, and clean tech.
