BNNano competed against over 4,500 early-stage U.S. startups spanning all 50 states, all with less than $10 million in annual revenue to be named among a list of twenty. The Most Fundable Companies initiative is designed to educate founders on the investor diligence process and recognize exceptional entrepreneurs who are solving today’s problems with inventive solutions and are also seeking investment capital to fuel their company's growth.
BNNano is leveraging innovations in cutting edge materials science to transform, revitalize, and revolutionize industrial commodities. An advanced manufacturing company, BNNano pioneered the patent pending NanoBarb™, a unique and enhanced Boron Nitride Nanotube. When added to common materials, the NanoBarb™ improves their natural properties, changing them into extraordinary materials.
Such transformational improvements mean aluminum can become as strong as steel or titanium. It means copper can provide advanced thermal management solutions. It means polyester can behave like Kevlar™. It means heat sinks can be made of plastic. In short, it means new capabilities in water purification, fire prevention and hypersonic travel.
BNNano is currently the only company in the world with a commercially viable manufacturing process for Boron Nitride Nanotubes. Their costs are orders of magnitude lower than any competitor, their quality is higher, and their IP portfolio protects the Boron Nitride NanoBarb™.
“Since starting BNNano in 2016, we’ve been focused on finding novel and innovative solutions to transform commodity materials and bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States. The Most Fundable Companies initiative provided us with a data-driven analysis that has enhanced our company strategy and has already been incorporated into our fundraising activities,” said Steve Wilcenski, CEO and Co-Founder of BNNano. “It’s extremely validating that Pepperdine Graziadio Business School is recognizing entrepreneurs throughout the country and providing resources to assist startups in securing private capital to accelerate meaningful innovation across industries and communities.”
The Most Fundable Companies initiative involved a multi-phase assessment that evaluated several company variables including financial projections, market opportunity, intellectual property and the strength of the management team, all of which were used to produce a fundability score. The Pepperdine Most Fundable Companies were evaluated and selected based on their readiness for private investment. Most Fundable Companies is powered by The Venture Alliance.
