IMERO word mark white

The nanoworld directly into your smartphone

IMERO is an all-in-one solution for anti-counterfeit. It provides a unique identity to any product or service by projecting the unique nanoworld into your smartphone camera. Any smartphone equipped with the IMERO App can verify this identity, but nobody can copy it. This enables innovative brands to protect their products against counterfeits, as consumers can now check the authenticity of a product as often as they want. Furthermore, different steps in the supply chain can easily be digitalized by linking them to the unique identity. This makes documentation processes more efficient and less vulnerable to fraud.

The global problem of counterfeits and piracy

Counterfeits: A trillion dollar business

By 2022, frontier economics estimates the total value of counterfeit and pirated good to be 1,9 – 2,8 Trillion USD. The numbers are based on an extensive study by the EUIPO & OECD.

Global employment losses

The forgone revenue of innovative companies has consequences: by 2022 these companies will employ about 5 Million people less than they could.

1 million fatalities

The consumption of counterfeit drugs causes about 1 million deaths and countless casualties all over the world. The rise of online-pharmacies has helped to spread fake drugs even faster.
