Vote for AIMM to win $60K!

April 19, 2022

A Dayton startup striving to develop new water purification technology, is a finalist Barclay’s Small Business, Big Wins Contest — and you can help founder Luis Estevez win $60K by voting!

Voting is open until April 22, and people can vote once per day.

The Small Business, Big Wins contest is one way Barclays aims to support small businesses. In the first round of the contest, small businesses nationwide shared their stories of perseverance and pivots through COVID with Barclays. From roughly 5,000 applications submitted, AIMM was selected among the top 10 finalists. Barclays is offering a $60,000 grand prize for the top vote-getter in this final round.

In addition to developing nanoparticle-powered water purification technology, AIMM is also using nanoparticle tech to develop a self-disinfecting N95 mask.

“We’ve had a lot of great traction, but there’s always so much more to do. This Barclays prize money would greatly help advance our capabilities as we work to bring our products to market,” Luis said.

Dayton-based AIMM is the only Ohio finalist in the Barclays contest — vote here to help them win big!
