Ones to Watch Report Series

The Ones to Watch series are an overview of selected early-stage photonics businesses whose story singles them out as exciting, innovative and worthy of note. Optica corporate member companies, less than 5 years old, were interviewed to get a closer look at the organizations’ key technologies, funding overview, market opportunities, product roadmap, and 5-year forecast. The report also features insight on why the company is worth watching and why the innovation sets this company apart. By taking this case study approach, you may draw parallels to your own circumstances. Ones to Watch series serve to stimulate ideas, discussion and offers real-life insight into existing and potential journeys.
