MecklerMedia Corporation (OTCQX: MECK) revealed details for the upcoming Inside 3D Printing Startup Competition, taking place at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California on October 22 during Inside 3D Printing Santa Clara.
Returning for its third year in California, Inside 3D Printing Santa Clara is California’s largest annual 3D printing show with 50 exhibitors and sponsors.
Over $8 million of funding has been raised following Inside 3D Printing startup competitions in New York and California since its addition to the Inside 3D Printing agenda in 2014. Previous competition winners include: 3D Hubs (NY 2014), Wivv Wearables (CA 2014), and Osiris Biomedical (NY 2015).
The competition features presentations from companies that are pushing the frontiers of 3D printing and expanding the industry. The selected companies cover an array of offerings from services to equipment to medical applications. This year’s winner will be awarded a $15,000 uncapped convertible note, courtesy of leading early-stage technology venture capital firm and Inside 3D Printing Santa Clara Startup Competition Sponsor, Asimov Ventures.
Access to the Startup Competition is free for attendees who register in advance. The competition is open to all Inside 3D Printing Santa Clara registrants and will take place on October 22 from 11:45AM – 12:30PM.
MecklerMedia has also partnered with digital art pioneer, Laurence Gartel, to host the Creative Force Design Competition at Inside 3D Printing Santa Clara. Participants have the opportunity to download and print a 3D file created by Gartel, and alter and adjust the file to create a unique work of art. The process explores the nuances of people’s sensibilities, use of color, and operation of technology for the magnitude of comparison.
