Cate­gory: Venture Capi­tal
17. Septem­ber 2018

Munich/Landshut — Bayern Kapi­tal invests in All3DP, opera­tor of a leading global inter­net plat­form for 3D prin­ting, in a series A2 closing. Bayern Kapi­tal had alre­ady inves­ted in the Series A1 finan­cing round around two years ago and now played a key role in struc­tu­ring the current round. The exis­ting inves­tors HTGF and Deut­sche Bala­ton AG are still on board. New addi­ti­ons are two busi­ness angels from the BayStartUP inves­tor network. All3DP opera­tes the online maga­zine All3DP.com, which provi­des infor­ma­tion about 3D prin­ting oppor­tu­ni­ties in the consu­mer and small busi­ness segments. The number of users is over 800,000 monthly, as All3DP foun­ders Stefan Schwarz-Ulrich, Anatol Locker, Mathias Plica (photo from left to right) explai­ned. All3DP also connects its users to 3D prin­ting service provi­ders via its own price compa­ri­son platform.

With the successful, English-language online maga­zine All3DP.com, the Munich-based start-up informs a broad target group from the consu­mer and small-busi­­ness segment about the possi­bi­li­ties of 3D prin­ting. In addi­tion, users are refer­red directly to 3D prin­ting service provi­ders. This makes All3DP the inter­na­tio­nal market leader in this segment. More than 800,000 users visit the All3DP.com website each month, of which about 40 percent are from North America.

The 3D prin­ting market is growing at a rapid pace, with the number of desk­top 3D prin­ters sold doubling every year. All3DP’s custo­mers come from all over the world, with a focus on North America and Europe. The finan­cing round now closed will enable the company to keep pace with the strong growth of the market and expand its market-leading position.

Dr. Georg Ried, Mana­ging Direc­tor of Bayern Kapi­tal, says: “All3DP has deve­lo­ped excel­lently, the user numbers are impres­sive. Ther­e­fore, we have parti­ci­pa­ted in this round again with full convic­tion. Because All3DP combi­nes important aspects: Market leader­ship with a convin­cing and scalable busi­ness model in a highly inte­res­t­ing market that offers excep­tio­nal future prospects.
