UbiQD is an advanced materials company powering product innovation in agriculture, clean energy, and security.

UbiQD is harnessing the power of light for product innovations in agriculture, energy, and security.

UbiQD was founded in 2014 by Dr. Hunter McDaniel. The company is headquartered in Los Alamos, New Mexico.

UbiQD's core technology involves a highly versatile, 'quantum-dot' nanomaterial that is capable of manipulating color and concentrating light.

UbiQD has developed a proprietary, patent-protected formulation of quantum dots that is safer, more cost-effective, and more durable than any existing alternative.


UbiQD's first product, UbiGro®, is a layer of light that uses fluorescence to create a more optimal greenhouse spectrum for crops. Customers include major international greenhouse operations covering millions of square feet. The funds will also support development of more advanced UbiGro products, including new 'light recipes' tailored to maximize the benefit for specific crops and particular geographic regions.


UbiQD is backed by Scout Ventures, Keiretsu Forum, Sun Mountain Capital, Epic Ventures, Plug and Play Ventures, Arcview Collective Fund, and others. The company raised $7M in Series A round on Dec 09, 2020. This brings UbiQD's total funding to $9.2M to date.
