Revolutionizing sinter-based metal additive manufacturing for serial production

We are super excited to announce AM Ventures’ EUR 2.5 m Series A investment in Headmade Materials GmbH

Founded by the trailblazing founders Christian Staudigel, Christian Fischer, Marius Geldner, CFA and Christian Fink, Headmade Materials has developed a novel metal feedstock that seamlessly integrates into existing selective laser sintering equipment and powder metallurgy processes. The Series A investment is intended to further expand Headmade Materials’ production capacities, the product portfolio and international sales.

„We have been observing Headmade Materials for quite some time and are impressed by the company’s development in the last few years. The great scope of applications the technology enables and the successful projects that the team of Christian Fischer and Christian Staudigel have carried out speak for themselves.“ – Arno Held & Adrian Maier-Ring

“With the support gained, we will accelerate the transformation of metal 3D printing into volume production, and together with our customers, bring numerous applications to market.” – Christian Staudigel

Welcome to our #fAMily, Headmades! We are looking forward to this super exciting revolution together with existing investor and long-term co-investor of AM Ventures, Robert Gallenberger, Partner at btov Partners Industrial Technologies Fund.

Revolutionizing indirect additive manufacturing of small and micro metal components

We are super excited to announce AM Ventures’ initial investment in MetShape

Founded by the trailblazing founders Johannes Homa, Carlo Burkhardt and Andreas Baum, MetShape has mastered the two steps metal AM processes using Lithography-based Metal Manufacturing (LMM). The seed investment will boost MetShapes’ capabilities in prototyping and production of precise small and micro metal components.

“The key to mastering indirect AM processes is to control the oven-based sintering processes after the green part has been 3D printed. We are convinced that the team around Dr. Andreas Baum combines the necessary competences and has extensive know-how for the development and serial production of high-quality applications.” – Johann Oberhofer

“With our holistic approach and know-how of the entire LMM process chain, we provide our customers the highest flexibility in developing and manufacturing their applications.” – Dr. Andreas Baum

We are very proud that this is our first investment of our recently established venture capital fund for industrial 3D printing. We are looking forward to this super exciting revolution together.

Thanks for breaking the news Madeleine Prior and Filippos Voulpiotis.

AM Ventures launches €100m venture capital fund dedicated to industrial 3D printing

AM Ventures, the leading venture capital firm in additive manufacturing (AM), announces the initial closing of the first-ever venture capital fund dedicated to industrial 3D printing. The company and major shareholders, the LANGER GROUP, join forces with KGAL, one of the leading independent investment and asset managers for real capital investments in Europe. The initial closing brings the fund close to 50% of the targeted commitment. The fund will continue to focus on further strengthening the support for seed and early growth stage hardware, software, materials, and applications startups in industrial 3D printing globally. The closing of this one-of-a-kind investment fund represents a strong signal not only for the AM industry itself but also for investors looking to benefit from the strong dynamic in advanced manufacturing M&A.
