Venture leaders mobile 2023

The Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest and most important event for the mobile industry. MinWave was among ten new members of Swiss national startup teams, presented their exceptional technology to the global market of telecommunications at MWC2023.
A week of pitching and networking at world’s largest connectivity conference allow Minwave to showcase its innovative technologies on an international stage.


MinWave won the final stage of Venture Kick to expand its ultra-compact microwave waveguide device design

Minwave wins the final stage of Venture Kick.
The CHF 150,000 award by Venture Kick will be used for the production process as well as the expansion of marketing and business development.
MinWave was founded by Dr. Maliheh Khatibi (CTO), a radio frequency design expert and postdoctoral researcher at the EPFL’s Laboratory of Wave Engineering (LWE) who invented the technology; Dr. Mostafa Khosrow (CEO), a mechanics and materials expert with years of industry experience; and Prof. Romain Fleury, a world-class subwavelength wave engineering expert, and head of the EPFL’s LWE.
Venture Kick was launched in 2007 with the vision to double the number of spin-offs at Swiss universities, to accelerate the time-to-market, and to raise the attractiveness of these young companies to professional investors.

MinWave team is glad to participate and exhibit at the sixth edition of Europe’s largest B2B event for the space industry in Bremen, the city of space. The Space Expo Tech is Europe’s marketplace for space business, technology, and innovation and draws the attendance of thousands of industry leaders, decision-makers, engineers, specifiers, and buyers to meet suppliers, manufacturers, and integrators spanning the entire space supply chain. MinWave presented new products and recent developments in the design and fabrication of metamaterial RF front-end devices


MinWave in ESTEC, ESA in Netherlands

MinWave team attended the European Space Agency (ESA) Industry Space Days (ISD) and met the space community at ESA/ESTEC (Noordwijk, The Netherlands) on 28 – 29 September 2022. The ISD was organized by the SME Office in the ESA Commercialisation Department to foster cooperation between different actors in the entire space sector. We had several B2B meetings and during the exhibition, we showcased MinWave products. MinWave then participated in ESA space passive component day at ESTEC ESA on October 11-14 2022. The aim of the SPCD symposium was to promote the discussion of recent developments and trends and to encourage the exchange of technical expertise and information covering a broad range of EEE passive components for space applications.


MinWave win VentureKick I and II

MinWave Technologies won Venture Kick’s first stage of financial and entrepreneurial support . We presented  to a Venture Kick jury on March 29th 2022  and won 10kCHF for the first phase,  where Minwave  has a 50 percent chance of selection for the next stage. Venture Kick stands for much more than the money. It offers a structured entrepreneurial path to build a winning venture.

MinWave in 2022 European electromagnetics events

MinWave CTO, Dr. Maliheh Khatibi, participated in 16th European Conference on Antenna and propagation (EUCAP ) in Madrid in March 2022 and then European microwave week  (EUMW ) in London in April 2022. She presented our recent developments on bent meta-filters and ka-band filters to discuss MinWave capabilities on miniaturization of microwave filters for space and telecommunications.  



Discussion on meta filters in the journal of Physical Review Applied

One of our innovative method for creating miniaturize waveguide filters based on locally resonant metamaterials (LRMs) was published in the prestigious journal of Physical Review Applied in August 2021. The ultrasmall metamaterial filters (metafilters) are utilizing a subwavelength (sub-λ) guiding mechanism in evanescent hollow waveguides, loaded with small resonant elements. Also, we suggested a subwavelength technique, which we refer to as a metaport, to match the small filters to standard interfaces.

MinWave is member of ESABIC Switzerland

MinWave Joined the ESA Business Incubation Centre Switzerland (ESA BIC CH) ( on May 10th 2021 and succesfully passed the midterm review in September 2021.

ESABIC is a nationwide initiative powered by the European Space Agency (ESA) and one of the world’s leading universities: ETH Zurich. The incubator offers extensive support packages (technical, business and financial support plus networking and community building) to startups that exploit technologies related to space for application on earth or technologies from earth adapted for usage in space. This relates to application fields such as navigation and positioning, telecommunication, cybersecurity, earth observation, materials & processes, space transportation & logistics or robotics. MinWave got 200kCHF financial supports and 80hours technical supports, while it is connected to ESABIC partners
