Checkerspot

Checkerspot is a Berkeley, California-based materials innovation company.

Checkerspot has built a technology platform that enables the design - at a molecular level - of new materials. Checkerspot's platform integrates biology, chemistry and fabrication. The company's initial materials focus has been on materials derived from triglycerides (oils) from microalgae. The triglycerides are used as molecular scaffolds.

In June 2018, Checkerspot closed its Seed Series of funding for over $5 million. The round was led by KdT Ventures, and included Viking Global Investors, Refactor Capital, Sahsen Ventures and Godfrey Capital. DIC Corporation also invested as part of its recently announced Joint Development Agreement with Checkerspot.

Checkerspot is a graduate of the Illumina Accelerator program.
