beeOLED welcomes New Advisory Board Member and Chairman Gerd Günther

beeOLED, a leading Dresden-based deep-tech startup specializing in OLED materials, is proud to announce the appointment of Gerd Günther as the newest member and Chairman of its Advisory Board.

This strategic addition marks a significant milestone in the company’s pursuit of revolutionizing OLED display technology, particularly in enhancing the lifetime and efficiency of blue emitters. Gerd Günther will strengthen beeOLED’s Board, which consists of representatives from the founders, alongside lead investors M Ventures, eCAPITAL and Innovation Industries.

Gerd Günther adds to beeOLED a wealth of experience and expertise in the OLED industry, where he has been deeply involved for many years. Gerd Günther brings more than 25 years of international management experience in consumer electronics and related fields. For example, he served as the long-standing CEO of Novaled, a frontrunner in the OLED sector. With his extensive network and profound understanding of the OLED industry, Günther perfectly complements beeOLED’s existing skillset as the company is gearing up for commercialization of their revolutionary emitter technology.

I am delighted to join the beeOLED team and to take on the position of Chairman of the Advisory Board. The company has already made impressive progress in this very important area of OLED devices, and I look forward to working with the dedicated team at beeOLED to shape further OLED innovation.

Gerd Günther, CEO, Novaled GmbH and Chairman of the Advisory Board, beeOLED GmbH

Following our successful Series A funding round in 2023, we are thrilled to welcome Gerd to our team. Having worked with Gerd and eCAPITAL for many years at Novaled, I am certain that his deep insights into the OLED market, combined with his experience in guiding German deep-tech startups, will undoubtedly be a tremendous asset to beeOLED. We look forward to successfully working with him.

Jan Blochwitz-Nimoth, CEO, beeOLED GmbH

Our positive experience with Gerd go back a long way – just over 10 years ago, we were able to sell our former portfolio company Novaled to Samsung very successfully. Since then, he has continued to develop the company in Dresden, and it enjoys a unique position worldwide with the development of OLED materials such as dopants and transport layers. He has unparalleled standing and experience in the industry and in my view, Gerd Günther as Chairman of the Advisory Board is therefore the ideal candidate to complement the beeOLED team!

With Gerd Günther’s appointment, beeOLED reinforces its commitment to pioneering advancements in OLED technology and solidifies its position as a key player in the industry.
