Echion Technologies

Echion Technologies has been founded by Jean de la Verpilliere (c2013). Jean was awarded the NanoDTC Translational Prize to develop the technology that led to the formation of Echion. Alex Groombridge, also from c2013 joined Echion soon after its formation.

Echion Technologies is based on innovation around the fundamental chemistry and nanostructure of a lithium ion battery’s active anode material. The name ‘Echion’ was inspired by the ancient Greek word for ‘spiny’ (ekhinos), which loosely describes the nano structure of the novel battery material. Cambridge Enterprise Seed Funds made a PathFinder loan to Echion Technologies in 2017. The company was also accepted into the 2017 Technology Development Accelerator Programme of the Advanced Propulsion Centre and is leading an InnovateUK funded project to develop batteries for electric buses. It has also successfully closed its first round of VC investment.
