Recently, Danish tech Teamway grabbed €1M for using web3 to build a member-owned society for product builders; another Copenhagen-based fintech Moneyflow raised €250M. Now the news is in that Denmark-based deeptech company ATLANT 3D Nanosystems (ATLANT 3D) has raised $15M in funding.
The round was led by West HillCapital, a UK venture capital firm, and was supported by existing investors, including a major Japanese corporation. The funding represents the largest combined Series A round outside of the life sciences and software in Denmark.
Next-gen micro and nanoelectronics
The funding will be used to move ATLANT 3D closer to its vision of developing a network-centric smart advanced manufacturing infrastructure based on its proprietary technology and know-how and integrating it with other advanced technologies in the future.
ATLANT 3D intends to establish a global network of advanced manufacturing hubs (A-hubs) to enable a radical innovation ecosystem for next-generation micro and nanoelectronics prototyping and manufacturing.

With AI solutions, ATLANT 3D enables advanced manufacturing by allowing direct patterning on complex surfaces, various substrate materials, plain wafers, and textures with existing structures or devices. ATLANT 3D technology has a configuration that enables atomically precise processing in micro and zero gravity.
In general, it reduces processing time and cost from years to months to days, and it provides unprecedented flexibility for material innovation, prototyping, and manufacturing of micro and nanodevices, replacing previous cleanroom-based complex process flows.
ATLANT 3D is a Danish deep-tech company founded in 2018 by Ivan Kundrata, Julien Bachmann, and Maksym Plakhotnyuk. The company is developing a fundamentally different and innovative micro and nanofabrication platform technology that enables atomically precise advanced manufacturing of advanced materials and electronics, with the goal of revolutionising electronics atom by atom.
“The existing process-intensive manufacturing method is a limiting factor in the future of electronics development. Due to its inflexibility, the current multi-step process is at the root of our current global supply chain crises, causing a shortage of electronics devices and bringing high barriers to innovation. “, says Dr. Maksym Plakhotnyuk, CEO and Founder ofATLANT 3D. “At ATLANT 3D, we have invented a unique technological platform that enables what was previously impossible. Imagine that new advanced materials, devices, and applications that you use today for your smart life or for the industry can be manufactured in-house, with flexibility, and sustainability in mind. The process can be fully digital, cost-effective, and provide a possibility for rapid innovation with atomic precision. The recently raised funding will enable us to continue the fast technology and product development and expand ATLANT 3D to the first international market.”
” We see a huge potential in ATLANT 3Ds’ groundbreaking technology. We were impressed by the company’s grand vision and the way how ATLANT 3D technology is ready to disrupttodisrupt the conventional microfabrication approach” says Alan Richards, Partner, and Co-Founder of West Hill Capital.
West Hill Capital has invested $500M in 40 early-stage high-growth companies in the UK and Denmark since 2014.
