Event Details

The 3-D Printing Incubator Workshop and Venture Day showcases University of Louisville students, entrepreneurialism and the robust advanced manufacturing ecosystem at the University of Louisville, which includes 3-D printing.

Students from the J.B. Speed School of Engineering’s Mechanical Engineering Department formed “startups,” then worked together to design a product, prototype it using 3-D printing and build a business case around it that could compete for a future round of financing.

The teams will present their products at a venture day morning event on April 20 at the Shumaker Research Building on the Belknap Campus.

——————

The University of Louisville 3-D Printing Business Incubator was launched in fall 2016 by professor, Dr. Sundar Atre, our Endowed Chair of Manufacturing and Materials. The incubator is a part of the mechanical engineering design capstone and Digital Manufacturing and Design Program, which is a consortium of companies that will participate in the growth of 3-D printing in terms of research and development, workforce development and products.

Companies are invited to sign up to mentor the incubator teams and provide a market focus for their products. The university connects industry to those resources through the Institute for Product Realization, which seeks to create an ecosystem that spurs innovation.
