Volumic is very proud to be part of the Tribune’s “NEXT 46” for 2019,
the selection of the most innovative French companies and startups of the moment.
This selection was made as part of the “10,000 Startups to Change the World” competition with over600 participantsin this 2019 edition.
In 4 years of innovation, we have become one of the key players in this technology on the desktop FDM 3D printer market. Our performance-based objective is to contribute to the emergence of a French industry of excellence in this 3D technology, and also to help our manufacturers take the strategic shift to Industry 4.0 in an increasingly competitive environment.
So when Volumic 3D innovates and pushes the limits of 3D printing, it directly benefits the technology and the French economy.
To understand how the competition works:
After an exceptional launch at CES in Las Vegas(La Tribune of December 21, 2018 and January 18, 2019), La Tribune conducted its “Tour de France of startups” in search of the entrepreneurs who are inventing the economy of tomorrow.
With stops in eight regional cities:
Marseille, Lyon, Strasbourg, Lille, Nantes, Paris, Bordeaux and Toulouse.
In each regional ecosystem, a local jury, made up of partners from BNP Paribas, Business France, Enedis, Mazars and WeHealth by Servier, listened to around 20 pitches to awarda regional winner in six main categories:
Environment & Energy, Industry 4.0, Deep Tech & Data(for innovation with high technological added value), Smart Tech(for innovations in use), Health and Start(dedicated to start-ups with less than one year of existence in all sectors).
Finally, the 46 regional winners competed in thefinals on March 11 in Paris, at the WAI (We Are Innovation) offices of BNP Paribas.
A big thank you to La Tribune, BNP Paribas and Mazarsfor encouraging and rewarding us in this 2019 edition.
