Aryballe Named to “Top 10 Start-Ups to Watch” by Chemical & Engineering News

By Sam Guilaumé
As the CEO of Aryballe, it is my pleasure to share that Aryballe has been selected as one of 2020’s “10 Start-Ups to Watch” by Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly news publication of the American Chemical Society. Presented annually by C&EN, the list recognizes start-up companies and their founders who are developing world-changing chemistry innovations and working to bring them to market.

Aryballe was selected among hundreds of nominations submitted from readers around the world as well as those compiled by the magazine’s writers and editors. The selection coincides with the release of this week’s issue of C&EN, which profiles Aryballe and digital olfaction, along with the nine other companies selected.

Since I joined Aryballe as CEO in 2017, we have made considerable progress in developing and expanding our technology thanks to the enduring hard work and creativity of our team. This exciting news from C&EN, which comes on the heels of our €7M funding announcement this summer, reaffirms our commitment to helping companies solve real industry problems through data-driven digital olfaction.

“I’m excited to share with our readers how the 10 start-ups we selected are working to tackle a range of important global challenges spanning different aspects of sustainability and human health,” says Bibiana Campos Seijo, Ph.D., editor-in-chief and vice president of C&EN Media Group. “We’re now in our sixth year featuring up-and-coming chemistry-based start-ups. Companies we’ve highlighted in past years have gone on to do great things, and we’re confident this year’s group will also be successful.”

It is an honor to be listed alongside such great company, and while I’m proud of what we were able to accomplish in 2020, I’m even more hopeful for 2021 as we continue to work towards the standardization of odor to bring smart decision-making to the enterprise.
