What Are Airships and Will They Be Part of the Future?

Thomas Edison famously said, “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.” If we were to adapt this quote to the modern-day business climate, it might go something like this: “Success is 1% inspiration, 49% perspiration, and 50% promotion.” Hype is having its heyday, especially when it comes to emerging technologies. We just wrote about the […]

How Lithium-Ion Batteries Will Continue to Improve

We’ve recently begun the rather interesting exercise of going through and summarizing the more than 1,600 articles published on Nanalyze since we began waxing poetic almost seven years ago. We were surprised to see that when it comes to grid-scale storage, flow batteries just never really achieved the traction investors were looking for, with more […]

Should You Invest in Recycling Vending Machines?

Earlier this year, we introduced you to Loop Industries (LOOP), a publicly traded U.S. company that is a pure-play for investing in recycled plastics. Specifically, Loop has developed a process for upcycling waste plastic and polyester fiber into high-purity, food-grade polyethylene terephthalate (PET), the same material used in the plastic water bottles and other packaging […]

Hyliion – Another Electric Semi Truck IPO

One way new investment opportunities manifest themselves is through initial public offerings (IPOs). This is an event where a company decides to sell some of their shares to the general public and institutional investors who will commit to purchasing shares. During this process, the company selling shares will typically go on a “roadshow” where they […]

Apeel Tackles Food Waste in America and the World

More than 35 startups have already joined the increasingly less-exclusive unicorn club this year, despite the fact that most people are home doing Zoom conferences to prove how much they’re working while not actually working. There are the usual hardware tech startups, such as ultrasound medical device company InSightec and smart security camera startup Verkada, […]

All About Nikola Motor Company’s Stock Offering

In our recent guide to investing in fuel cell stocks, we reflected on how the hydrogen economy hasn’t quite matured and – according to Elon Musk – shouldn’t ever mature. Battery-powered vehicles seem to be working out just fine, so why reinvent the wheel? At least one company disagrees with Mr. Musk. Nikola Motor Company […]

Unreasonable Group Tackles World’s Greatest Challenges

It’s not surprising that billionaires come with big egos, though the recent revelation from SoftBank’s CEO Mayoshi Son that he’s kind of like Jesus seems like some outsized hubris even for him. After all, Son is not exactly walking on water these days, as his outsized Vision Fund has lost about $17.7 billion last year, […]

A Guide to Investing in Fuel Cell Stocks

We recently published a piece on how hydrogen fuel cells might be used to power drones that carry humans, leading one of our readers to remark, “not the ‘hydrogen economy’ again!” We share those sentiments, having watched fuel cell technology take off at a crawl with no widespread adoption apparent. While fuel cells are being […]

Hydrogen Fuel Cells for Urban Air Mobility

We recently profiled a startup that is developing a flying motorcycle to go along with a jetpack that it designed and built a few years ago. JetPack Aviation is one of a growing number of companies trying to help launch what’s become known as the urban air mobility industry. The idea is that swarms of […]

A Clean Food Stock That’s Not Beyond Meat

If you’ve not spent time in the United Kingdom, you’d be excused for not knowing about a company called Innocent Smoothies. The three founders famously gave away their smoothies at a music festival with a sign that said “should we quit our jobs to go make smoothies” asking the empty bottles to be thrown in […]
