ⓘ Halcyon Molecular

Halcyon was founded by the brothers William Andregg and Michael Andregg in 2008, and was based, first at the University of Arizona where they had done undergraduate coursework, and later in Redwood City, California. It raised over $20 million in venture capital investment from Peter Thiels Founders Fund, as well as hardware entrepreneur Elon Musk. Over the period 2010-2011, the company employed former SpaceX computer engineers Michael Dabrowski and Paul Dabrowski, before they left to found Synthego.
