Wauwatosa water sensor technology startup NanoAffix is a product of Milwaukee through and through.
Founded by former University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee engineering professor Junhong Chen, the company was launched with guidance from the UWM Research Foundation. Its early strategic partners, seed investors and ad-hoc advisers are well-known local water industry manufacturers A.O. Smith Corp., Badger Meter Inc. and Baker Manufacturing Co. LLC.
NanoAffix has also received support from The Water Council, which has its headquarters in Milwaukee, and this year was selected for the organization’s BREW 2.0 accelerator program that’s focused on helping water startups from around the world bring their technology to market.
