Metallum3D needs funding to get customers and needs customers to get funding, they are lacking in both.

Proposed solutions:

Use this current climate of the world as an opportunity to strengthen their marketing strategy.

  • Change their strategy to customer-centered approach to make sure they are getting what is needed
  • Frame tech as a solution to top 3 customer needs; quality, cost, and speed
  • Opportunity with COVID-19 for faster regulatory approval and more to local JIT inventory
  • Pursue areas of differentiation from other 3D printing startups

This strategy helped Metallum3D to find an alternative path to funding, gather connections, and balance their ethos.
