Insect Farming Startup Building Robotic Farm for Bugs

Earlier this year we wrote about the sudden lack of interest in funding for vertical farm startups, which are companies led mostly by Silicon Valley gringos bringing microgreens that cost mega greenbacks to urban Millennials. In fact, AgFunder’s 2020 mid-year agtech investment report noted that novel farming startups had raised only $105 million in the […]

6 Sustainable Materials Made from Microalgae and Seaweed

One thing about emerging technologies is that you never know when – or if – they will finally fulfill their promise or fall flat. Take the miracle material graphene. Thin, light, and hard as a diamond, graphene was supposed to revolutionize how we build everything in the future. Not so much. We’ve written about 30 […]

The Biggest Renewable Energy Company in the World

It was just over a year ago when we had boots on the ground in Azerbaijan scouting tech startups for our piece on the Top 12 Disruptive Tech Startups in the Caucasus. Of the three countries featured in our piece, Azerbaijan is the only one afflicted with “the curse of oil.” It’s the same curse […]

Why is The Only Solar Energy ETF Soaring?

Why Has the Guggenheim Solar ETF (TAN) Underperformed? was the title of an article we published more than three years ago. My how things have changed. Since the beginning of this year, TAN is up +96% compared to a Nasdaq return of +24% over the same time frame. There’s no longer any competing solar ETF […]

A Pure-Play Electric Vehicle Charging Stock

About three months ago, we published an article which talked about “How SPACs Reward Everyone Except Retail Investors.” Whenever a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) announces their intention to merge with a startup, shares usually soar on the news alone. And that’s not the only problem. We warned you about all the electric vehicle SPACs […]

Rohinni – A Leader in Mini and Micro LED Technologies

Physicist Richard Feynman once gave a lecture – without notes, like a proper presenter – in which he talked about how there’s plenty of room at the bottom. The year was 1959, and Feynman was proposing that we manipulate matter on an atomic scale, ideas that would eventually become nanotechnology as we know it today. […]

Vertical Farming Companies See Funding Drought

Nanalyze has largely avoided playing the pandemic clickbait game, but there’s no denying that the novel coronavirus has changed the rules in terms of what’s hot and what’s not. While the stock market has been mostly detached from reality, there is some logic behind the rise and fall of certain sectors of the economy in […]

A Warning About Electric Vehicle Stocks

Easter European cities have had electric trams running through them for decades now. Using electricity to transport large numbers of humans on trains and buses isn’t anything new. What’s changed is that improvements in lithium battery technologies now mean we can economically electrify much smaller vehicles like passenger cars, motorcycles, or scooters. The most visible […]

Here’s Why Short Sellers Are Shorting Tesla

For the last several months we’ve been organizing the 1,700+ articles here on Nanalyze into a handy set of guides for our readers. (You can access these using the dropdown in the upper right-hand corner of this page.) During that process, we realized that we’ve never written about Tesla, aside from a few green tech […]

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 […]
