Information The company had £150,000 of its SEIS allowance remaining at the start of this raise. This will be allocated to investors on a first come first served basis. Any investments made after that limit has been exceeded will not be SEIS eligible but will potentially be eligible for EIS. The potential tax relief of any investment will be confirmed by email to investors, after they have submitted their applications to invest, and will depend on an investor's individual circumstances. Lightly intend to apply to Enterprise Ireland for further equity funding to match this round (matched funding) once this round is closed, though this is not guaranteed to be granted.

Idea

Lightly Technologies has developed an ultra-thin LED light bulb, enabling a new generation of lighting fixture design and lighting in architecture. The light bulb, Hikari SQ, is essentially a light-emitting tile, only 3mm thick that produces a surface of quality light for functional and decorative designs. Using LED technology, Hikari SQ creates a beam of bright but low glare light, and is designed to be highly energy efficient with a lifetime of over 20 years.

Problem

Since 2012, the global lighting industry has invested almost $500m into R&D for OLED lighting, the first ultra-thin, surface light source. Despite this investment and widespread interest from the market, OLED lighting never became commercially viable due to high manufacturing costs and poor performance.

By fundamentally rethinking the approach to engineering this form of light source, Lightly Technologies have solved the issues associated with OLED lighting. Lightly will capitalise on the existing market interest for ultra-thin light sources and enable value creation for B2B customers, through the design of unique, modern lighting fixtures.

Traction

Having finalised the engineering design and now preparing for mass production, Lightly Technologies have started shipping paid developer kits to B2B customers across Europe who are starting to develop products using Hikari SQ.

The company has directors loans of €6k.
