Light Polymers is a Silicon Valley based nanochemistry startup developing technology based on lyotropic materials which can be used in smartphones, LED lighting, building materials and other industries. Light Polymers recently signed two joint venture agreements with Tsinghua Innovation Center in Dongguan (TICD) which is supported by the Government of Dongguan and Songshan Lake District.
Dongguan is a prefecture-level city in the central Guangdong Province of South China, located north of Hong Kong. Dongguan has long been a significant manufacturing center in China and home to major multinational manufacturers. On a recent Saturday, a large contingent of officials from the city of Dongguan, including the Mayor of Dongguan, were visiting Silicon Valley to build additional relationships and links to Silicon Valley based companies. Marc McConnaughey, President/CEO of Light Polymers officially signed the joint venture agreements with Mr. Yan, head of TICD, during this visit.
“Since the investment by Tsingda Venture Capital Investment, both of these joint ventures have been under negotiation and recently concluded,” said Marc McConnaughey, President/CEO of Light Polymers. “Now with the support of the Dongguan government, Light Polymers and TICD will begin the registration and setup of these two joint ventures in Songshan Lake District.”
