CEO, Nanovation Sarl
Orsay, France
Country of origin: France

Photo of Frechteh H. TeheraniWhat I do.
I am an entrepreneur-scientist and one of the four founders of the start-up Nanovation. Nanovation was created in 1999 around the revolutionary principle of creating an environment-focused semiconductor factory. The basic idea is to avoid toxic materials and processes in the development and fabrication of novel optoelectronic devices with superior energy efficiency.

What I find exciting.
I appreciate challenge of starting and developing a company, based on the fabrication of an emerging semiconductor that nobody would have bet on in 1999, and which has turned out to be one of the hottest topics in materials science ten years later.

What I wish someone had told me.
"Can I help you?"
