Vancouver Startup Nano-Lit to Unveil Revolutionary Lighting Technology at Milestone Event

Vancouver, Canada – Join us as Nano-Lit Technologies unveils the only Quantum Dot (QD) lighting fixture in the world.

Based in Vancouver BC, Nano-Lit Technologies’ revolutionary and proprietary Quantum Dot technology is set to redefine our relationship with light. This lighting solution provides improved colour purity, energy efficiency, and cost savings—a triple threat.

Nano-Lit’s combination of Quantum Dot technology, innovative patents, and intimate knowledge of industrial design has created the Nano-Lit Smart Diffuser™.  This revolutionary lighting fixture will be shared with a select audience on October 30 in Vancouver.

“We want to have an intimate demonstration event in Vancouver to show what this innovative technology is about,” says Nano-Lit CEO Sarah Morgan. “Before we open up investment to the world, our aim is to share what we’re about to both our present and future partners, and investment community; our strength rests on the fact that our technology can emit light as rich and nuanced as sunlight, promoting the optimal environment for focus and efficiency based on the circadian rhythm that governs all life on earth.”

“This is an exciting product as this technology promotes both individual well being as well as the increased efficiency and productivity of organizations and companies,” adds Rolf Skala, CMO of Nano-Lit. “The benefits are game changing on multiple levels and further serve to put Vancouver on the map for innovation”.
