Royal DSM, a science-based company headquartered in Heerlen, the Netherlands, has launched 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 Additive Manufacturing. 

The challenge is being run in collaboration with HighTechXL, Hexagon, and Ultimaker, and will provide select companies with a place on a ten-week acceleration programme designed to launch or mature their businesses. After the programme, participating startups may also be eligible for funding or a partnership with DSM.

The company stated that applications to the I AM Tomorrow Challenge are free of charge and should be submitted by August 8, 2019. Once ten successful applicants have been selected, they will be invited to participate in the acceleration programme, which will be located at HighTechXL’s site in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, and Boston, Massachusetts, USA, and include expert coaching sessions, master classes and 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.

Hugo da Silva, VP Additive Manufacturing DSM, commented, “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.”
