Some of the most exciting aspects of working at 3DHEALS are discovering early-stage startups, their founders, seeing new trends and visions, and learning about adjacent technologies, and the forces behind them. However, changing the world is not easy, and fundraising remains one of many challenges founders in healthcare 3D printing will meet. Since April 20th, 2018, 3DHEALS has hosted numerous online and offline Pitch3D sessions, introducing 30+ startups from all over the world to institutional investors who are interested in healthcare 3D printing, bioprinting, and adjacent fields including AI and cybersecurity (within 3D printing), 3D scanning, VR/AR, 3D Visualization, synthetic materials, and regenerative medicine. However, beyond the technological appeal, the goal of Pitch3D is to encourage healthcare innovations focusing on a decentralized healthcare delivery system of personalized solutions. We believe that is the natural progression of our society because of the past industrial revolutions.
Online Pitch3D Startups can be within the following fields:
- Medical devices using 3D printing technologies, including but not limited to anatomical modeling, patient-specific implants, and patient-specific implantable devices
- Bioprinting and Bioprinting related applications (e.g. bio-manufactured goods and foods)
- Other emerging technologies that would improve existing digital manufacturing of medical devices (e.g. Cybersecurity, Machine learning/vision, etc.)
- Advanced Biomaterials
- Synthetic Biology
- 3D Visualization
- 3D Scanning
- Regenerative Medicine (e.g. Stem cells)
This online private event is set to be recurrent quarterly, aiming to create an opportunity for early-stage startups in the realm of healthcare 3D printing, bioprinting, and advanced materials to have first meetings with a curated panel institutional investors.
The presentations are meant to be succinct and aim to get to the bottom line quickly to stage for a second 1:1 meeting that would be more in-depth with interested investors.
The online format also avoids the opportunity cost of the investor-startup meeting due to time and geographic barriers. To pitch in our future sessions, the application is here. To be included in our investor mailing list, you must be qualified institutional investors, please email us directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
