INAM is a global network of companies and research institutes in the field of Advanced Materials. Their mission is to support innovative ideas, products and processes in the field of Advanced Materials with the aim to accelerate the global market entry of technology innovations by providing access to infrastructure and collaboration between corporates, startups and research institutions.
“MaterDynamics participated in our accelerator program, AdMaCom, in 2018, coming from one of the most exciting places in Europe for deep tech, Portugal,” said Antonia Caraveteanu, INAM’s Managing Director. “Tiago [founder of Mater Dynamics] impressed everyone at AdMaCom with his outstanding technology and took home the Mentors Favourite award – not an easy one to win! We’re extremely happy to welcome them to our network two years later and continue supporting them in their growth.”
In 2018, Mater Dynamics Lda. pitched their QStamp® product – an environmentally friendly microelectronic imbedded sensor, for product packaging quality monitoring and traceability. The team, led by Tiago Cunha Reis, won over the mentors with their impressive powerless, low-cost sensor that could be programmed according to standard telecom protocols such as WiFi, GSM or BLE.
Since then, Mater Dynamics Lda. has been moving forward with new products and technologies. They have recently launched a new technology – Stamply® – which is a new and improved version of Mater Dynamics’ core technology. Stamply® comes in Different formats for different substrates and needs – Stamply® stickers, Stamply® cards and Stamply® tiles. Once added to the customer’s object of choice, a connection is configured and established via smartphone or gateway which allows users to retrieve data directly.
As of now, Mater Dynamics Lda. products are being commercialized in five countries, and they have sold up to 80,000 units (and counting!). The team has worked on other projects using their technology. Most notably (and one of INAM’s favourite appications), Mater Dynamics helped create the world’s first postage stamp with an LED just in time for Christmas last year (2019).
Mater Dynamics’ focus is to reshape the way that businesses and consumers interact with physical products, while promoting best practices towards circular economy and enhancing UX convenience. To do this, they are looking for local business representatives in the following countries: Germany, Netherlands, and France and are always looking to partner up with companies with D2C models (direct-2-consumer) that want to reinforce the promotion of circular economy and sustainability.
