Winners of the 2021 Formnext Start-up Challenge announced

October 13, 2021

The seventh international Formnext Start-up Challenge, organised by Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH as part of Formnext 2021, has announced this year’s winners. The international winners will present their award-winning products during Formnext in Frankfurt, Germany, from November 16–19, 2021, and exhibit them in the Start-up Area.

The winning start-ups are Atlant 3D Nanosystems ApS (Denmark), Azul 3D (USA), Fited (USA), Print Parts (USA) and Nobula AB (Sweden). This year the AM Ventures Impact Award, presented at the same ceremony, goes to Vispala Technologies (India).

Atlant 3D Nanosystems is the only winner whose products include metal AM solutions. A start-up from Denmark, the company is developing a platform for the AM of components with atomic precision in a very large range of materials.

“The ever-increasing quality and focused development of young enterprises show the great potential within the AM industry and highlight the fact that the sector produces critical developments that in future will influence our industry, medicine and other areas of life,” stated Sascha F Wenzler, vice president of Formnext at Mesago Messe Frankfurt, on the challenge winners.

The Formnext Start-up Challenge recognises companies that are no older than five years for innovative and viable business ideas. Its judging panel consists of prominent representatives from industry, science, media, and investment.
