Abeo A/S was founded in June 2010 in cooperation between the Technical University of Denmark, the venture capital fund SEED Capital and a group of entrepreneurs comprised of Kristian Hertz, Mads Løntoft, Peter Hertz and Alexander Wulff. The name is inspirered by the latin word abeo, which means "to change" or "to transform". The idea was to commercialize the two revolutionary and patented building technologies Super-Light Structures and Pearl-Chain Reinforcement.
Both technologies were originally invented by Kristian Hertz, who is Professor at The Technical University of Denmark (DTU), and were published in October 2009 in the renowned “Magazine of Concrete Research”.
In 2010 Abeo won the Danish championship in cleantech, which gave the honour of representing Denmark at the world championship in cleantech in Silicon Valley in San Francisco. Once again Abeo secured the victory ahead of contestants from 30 other countries and in front of a crowd of 1200 investors, experts and business people.
