Nearly 2,000 scientific research institutions and industrial enterprises from 35 countries around the world are working with BMF to enable rapid prototyping or for more efficient production of micro-scale parts. The current funding comes just one year after BMF completed a $42 million Series C round of financing in 2022.
“We’ve proven we can meet the needs of our customers, but we know that our technology can do more. Through our Research Institute in San Diego and multiple efforts on other projects being developed globally, we’re entering an era of self-driven innovation to identify new opportunities that are uniquely enabled by our technology,” said John Kawola, CEO-Global, BMF. “This funding ensures we can continue our unwavering commitment to our customers and partners, while giving us the resources to power new innovation.”
