OurCrowd’s portfolio company Consumer Physics, developer of the world’s first affordable molecular sensor – the SCiO – that fits in the palm of your hand, has been featured on CNBC’s “Power Pitch.” On the show, Dror Sharon, co-founder of Consumer Physics, had 60 seconds to make his pitch and convince a panel of experts his company has what it takes to become the next big thing.
The panel included Clara Sieg, partner with Revolution Ventures, Stephanie Palmeri, principal at SoftTech VC and Mark Siegel, a managing director atMenlo Ventures. CNBC anchor Mandy Drury was the host.
“Our mission is to help people better understand the world around them and to encourage our community to help map the physical world,” Sharon told CNBC.
“Spectroscopy, the technology, has been used in health care for many, many years and we feel there might be potential killer apps there as well. [We want to] take it to the consumer.”
Seeded by OurCrowd and top tier Silicon Valley VC Khosla Ventures, Consumer Physics raised $3,300,000 from OurCrowd investors in its 2nd round of funding in May 2014.
