AM Ventures, the global leader in venture capital for additive manufacturing, announces the final closing of its industrial 3D printing venture capital fund. The fund has reached its hard cap of EUR 100 million. The funds will be used by the venture capital firm to expand its strong portfolio of 17 companies and to further boost the industrial 3D printing industry.

AM Ventures’ oversubscribed seed and early-growth fund closes at EUR 100 million, the fund’s ambitious hard cap.

The fund consolidates the company’s position as the leading venture capitalist in additive manufacturing. Aside from multi-million dollar investments from well-known family offices, asset managers, SMEs, and multinational corporations, AM Ventures-backed Startup founders join the strong investor lineup.

“The fact that portfolio company founders are now investing in our fund is a great validation of our exceptional effort. We are proud of the high-level commitment and trust from prime investors that support us on our mission to leading sustainable additive revolutions.”

– Johann Oberhofer, co-founder and managing partner at AM Ventures

Expanding portfolio to boost Industrial 3D Printing

AM Ventures currently manages a seed portfolio of 17 companies across six countries and three continents. In 2021, the venture capitalist not only led three investment rounds in Germany-based MetShape and Headmade Materials, as well as Switzerland-based Scrona, but also participated in four follow-on financing rounds with existing portfolio companies, including a USD 50 million Series C investment in US-based Lightforce Orthodontics and a AUD 8.5 million Series A round for Conflux Technology in Australia.

With the fund’s final close, the team led by Johann Oberhofer and Arno Held will continue to support entrepreneurs seeking to transform the world through the use of industrial 3D printing hardware, materials, software, and applications.

According to Arno Held, co-founder and managing partner, “The additive manufacturing industry has shown steady and strong growth over the last decade and Startups have played a crucial role during this time. We are convinced that Startups will continue to be key in providing the innovation required to finally bring the digital world to the real world, and that they will help to produce industrial goods in a sustainable manner and thus strengthen supply chains and tackle climate change.”
