(ABC6 News) - The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development granted $28,000 to Nanodropper, a local start-up company, last week.
Nanodropper is a two-year old company which makes an affordable, universal eye-drop bottle adaptor to help reduce waste and reduce the cost of eye medications.
Allisa Song, a Mayo Clinic medical student, is CEO and one of the four co-founders of the Nanodropper. Song said the clientele ranges from, "anyone who is tired of having the little bit that dribbles down your cheek all the way to having a financial difficulty affording their medication."
Song added that the company is putting their grant money toward jobs that will help them prepare for their product launch at the end of the month.
"We will be available on our website at Nanodropper.com but we will also be found at your local eye care clinic so that's your optometrist or your ophthalmologist office," Song said. "So, we're partnering with clinics across the nations."
