Dyndrite DMID (Digital Manufacturing Investor Day) 2021, hosted by HP Tech Ventures and Dyndrite, is the second annual event looking to connect emerging technologies in the digital manufacturing industries with investors.
Building on the inaugural DMID 2020 event, which saw more than 80 investor firms and 12 featured startups in attendance, the next event on 19 January 2021 promises to be yet more impactful.
The all-star industry panel at DMID 2021 will act as a sounding board for companies pitching during the event.
Each panelist will offer feedback and ask the critical questions entrepreneurs must be able to answer. Investors in attendance will also be given information on the startups ahead of the event to understand more about each company, team, and technology.
The event’s panel of industry investors and successful entrepreneurs includes Threshold Ventures and co-host HP Tech Ventures.
These are bolstered by the panel of CEOs that will appraise and offer advice to the start-ups – including Arrival, valued at £5.4 billion and pioneering a radical approach to the design and manufacture of zero emissions mobility solutions; Bright Machines, which is melding robotics with computer vision and machine learning as part of their Microfactory, and Tech Soft 3D, which recently acquired Visual Kinematics and Ceetron as part of the company’s growth strategy.
“Dyndrite’s Digital Manufacturing Investor Day was very beneficial for Voxel8 as we were preparing for a Series B+ fund raise,” said DMID 2020 emerging company Voxel8 CEO Friedrich von Gottberg.
“In addition to connecting with potential investors, we expanded our network of other additive companies with whom we explored collaboration opportunities and even ended up with a new board advisor! I’d highly recommend the event to any startup.”
DEVELOP3D will be present at DMID 2021 as event Media Sponsor, with industry experts invited to register now here.
“It is a critical time for the manufacturing industry as a whole. While the pandemic shut down in-person events, affecting emerging companies in the middle of their capital raise, it also highlighted the fragility of extended supply chains and the deep-seated inability of manufacturers to be agile in their response,” said a Dyndrite spokesperson.
“It emphasised how much more automation on the shop floor is needed to protect workers and signalled the need for better solutions, more market adoption and usage of digital manufacturing technologies.”
