MLL Legal advised ETH Spin-off Chiral Nano Ltd on its Pre-Seed Financing Round

MLL Legal advised Chiral on all legal and tax aspects of its Pre-Seed Financing Round, including the structuring of the investment, the negotiation of all transactional documents and the tax planning.

Chiral is an ETH spin-off specialized in the development and commercialization of nanomaterials. The Company’s founders, all ETH graduates, developed a technology for fabricating high-quality carbon nanotube electronics with multiple commercial use cases, ranging from quantum and sensors to computer chips. The high-end technology achieved market readiness unusually fast, so that Chiral is in a position to start commercializing its products less than a year after inception of the business.

Trusting in the value of the technology and its bright commercial perspective, Founderful and HCVC, two reputable venture capital investors, invested substantial equity funding in Chiral.

ETH in turn greatly facilitated the progress of its spin-off, by providing relentless support to the founders and granting Chiral the use rights to its key technology. This step is a display of ETH’s trust in a business vision backed by a high potential technology, two first class investors and three scientists with an exceptional entrepreneurial flair.

The team was led by Christian Rebell (partner, M&A and venture capital) and further included Thomas Nabholz (partner, tax), Loredana Hartmann (associate, M&A and venture capital) and Rebecca Isenegger (associate, notary public).
