Feb 02, 2022   |   Forbes

"To ensure that patients with implanted devices don't have to undergo invasive procedures for battery recharge and replacement, in 2017, [Grayson Zulauf '12 Th'13] cofounded a company called Resonant Link along with Aaron Stein and Phyo Aung Kyaw, both PhD students at Dartmouth at the time as well as their professor Charlie Sullivan, after he met them at a conference in Italy," reported Forbes.

"'Wireless charging is a safe, non-invasive way of recharging batteries for this growing class of implantable devices,' says Zulauf.

"The company announced Wednesday that it has raised a $9.3 million seed round. The round was led by The Engine, the venture firm spun out of MIT that invests in early-stage tech. Volta Energy Technologies, along with Emerson Collective, Scout Ventures, Urban Us and FreshTracks Capital also participated in the round."
