Royal DSM has announced the I AM Tomorrow Challenge, an acceleration programme for start-ups and scale-ups focused on data analytics, AI, and other advanced software solutions for large-scale 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing. Royal DSM is a global purpose-led, science-based company active in nutrition, health, and sustainable living.

Launched in collaboration with HighTechXL, Hexagon, and Ultimaker, the challenge offers select companies a spot on a ten-week acceleration programme designed to launch or mature their businesses. After the acceleration programme, participating start-ups may be eligible for funding or a partnership with DSM, according to a press release by the company.

Additive manufacturing is emerging as a more sustainable, transparent, and cost-effective way to manufacture products by reducing waste and minimising transportation. DSM’s team helped pioneer the additive manufacturing industry more than 25 years ago with its Somos products. Today, the company actively collaborates and partners with companies across the 3D-printing value chain to unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing. The I AM Tomorrow Challenge aims to stimulate the digital ecosystem that could shape the future of additive manufacturing for decades to come.

Start-ups and scale-ups are encouraged to apply to the I AM Tomorrow Challenge by August 8, 2019. There is no cost to apply. Ten successful applicants will be invited to participate in the acceleration programme, located at HighTechXL’s campus in Eindhoven, as well as in Boston, Massachusetts (US), which will consist of expert coaching sessions, master classes and exclusive networking opportunities. During the acceleration programme, Hexagon’s manufacturing intelligence division will work with DSM and partners to evaluate companies interested in participating and work towards the development of a platform which will provide end-to-end digital solutions for additive manufacturing.

“Digitalisation will transform the world of manufacturing. By building an ecosystem of partners, we can work together to create tools that support 3D-printing design and production, helping our affiliates and customers create innovative new products in a more sustainable way. The I AM Tomorrow Challenge is a step toward a brighter future,” Hugo da Silva, VP additive manufacturing DSM said. (GK)
