【Abstract】

The ever-increasing number and size of dedicated investments in 3D printing solutions show that key strategists have realized the various advantages of additive manufacturing inherits. And it is also true that the market needs more technology solutions to address the challenges (e.g. cost, productivity, reliability, automation, post-processing, etc.) and to maximize the benefit of AM (e.g. design freedom, easy customization, digital production, etc.) to drive quicker technology adoption for industrial-scale production.Startups have contributed a lot to the success of the industry and will play a critical role in the future leveraging their natural speed, creativity and flexibility. Today, the AM Ventures ecosystem consists of AM-related hardware, software, material and application ventures. Well-known investments range from software (3Yourmind), hardware (Sintratec, DyeMansion) and material companies (Elementum 3D) to application startups such as Vectoflow or Conflux Technology.
