Walloon Regional Funding
Governmental funding available to finance innovative research in Wallonia.
The project was initiated by the Start-up studio MAKEIT in 2015. The original idea required multiple iterations and deep technical validation which took 21 months. Confident about the technical feasibility of the innovation, Aerosint was founded and a first patent was filed.
In 2017, the Aerosint team managed to secure funding from the Walloon Government (DGO6) and from private investors Meusinvest and the Innovation Fund. This funding was used to create a first prototype of the dispensing technology and further integrate it into an industrial polymer 3D printer for value demonstration.
