Swistor and IsoSpec Analytics granted by EPFL Startup Launchpad

— The EPFL Startup Launchpad has granted two awards of CHF100,000 each to future EPFL startups Swistor and IsoSpec Analytics. While the former startup project enables high-energy and ultra-fast charging energy storage devices (supercapacitors) with a significantly reduced carbon footprint, the later is looking to reduce the time new drugs reach the market through optimising early-stage development.
