AI-powered manufacturing platform MakerVerse has secured €9.4 million in Series A funding led by 9.5 Ventures, with participation from Siemens Energy and ZEISS. The Berlin-based firm combines artificial intelligence with a global supply chain certified for CNC machining and 3D printing, streamlining the process of obtaining industrial-quality parts.
The new funding will allow MakerVerse to expand its “one stop shop” concept by incorporating new technologies and materials. In addition, the company aims to offer advanced support to customers for seamless integration with existing systems and to expand capacity for larger-scale production orders.
Launched in early 2022, MakerVerse provides a fully validated global supply chain for advanced manufacturing technologies, helping companies build resilient supply chains and easily source parts for prototyping, mass production, and more. Initially focused on Germany, the company has attracted a diverse client base across Europe and beyond, serving multinationals, mid-market companies and start-ups.
“We have identified that many customers require additional support for their advanced manufacturing projects,” said Ward Ripmeester, MakerVerse’s director of operations.
“With this funding, we will be able to expand our end-to-end production order support, which involves creating complete manufacturing plans, providing expert guidance, and executing the entire project.”
In just one year, MakerVerse onboarded some 50 approved vendors and now employs more than 30 people from more than 15 countries. This latest round of funding highlights the unique advantages of the platform, which combines the benefits of corporate investors with the speed and experience of venture capital firms.
