With the capital, Stratumn hopes to boost research, design and business development, while also expanding its presence in the US by the end of the year.

“We are very confident about Stratumn’s development prospects in the upcoming months and years.
“The successful closing of this round, as well as our investor’s commitment as strategic partners, is rocket fuel which will power the development and launch of Proof of Process Technology.”
