SAN FRANCISCO—10 August 2018—Q Division today announced that it has partnered with the National Graphene Association (NGA) to foster the next generation of IoT technology, advocating the use of graphene, a groundbreaking two-dimensional material based on carbon that is transparent, flexible and can be as thin as an atom but remain 200 times as strong as steel. Q Division is the global retail consultancy of the STRATACACHE family of marketing technology companies, advising brands and retailers on how to create data-driven, best-in-class customer experiences.
The NGA, the main organization in the U.S. driving innovation and promoting the commercialization of graphene, is partnering with Q Division to facilitate new types of customer experiences, flexible displays, wearable tech, in-store analytics sensors and more. Graphene’s properties are the gateway for emerging technology with it being scalable and viable in several industries. Q Division will bring customer experience and retail innovation insight to the partnership, combining with NGA’s technology to help businesses rethink the next generation customer experiences that will be powered by graphene.
“Not since the invention of electricity has there been a tech that can transform the world in so many different ways. Our partnership with the National Graphene Association will provide us with unprecedented access to ground-breaking technology which in-turn will allow us to create new opportunities and experiences for our clients,” said Manolo Almagro, Managing Partner of Q Division.
“Q Division’s experience and market reach will enable us to interface with forward thinking industries who are looking for innovation in next generation electronics, sensors and wearables and jumpstarting the implementation of graphene. Further, we are quite excited to welcome Q Division as partner at the upcoming Global Graphene Expo,” said Zina Jarrahi Cinker, Executive Director of NGA.
