France-based Aledia, founded in 2011, developed a technology to grow 3D GaN LEDs on 200 mm silicon wafers using CMOS wafer-fabrication processes and tools. Aledia says that its LED chips are 25% cheaper compared to traditional planar LED chips, and these LEDs can be used for micro-LED displays.

Aledia raised over $40 million in two financing rounds in 2013 and 2015 and $36 million in its Round C financing round in 2018.
