Stanley + Techstars Additive Manufacturing Accelerator Demo Day
Stanley + Techstars Additive Manufacturing Accelerator Demo Day is October 11, 2018 at the Bushnell Theatre in Hartford. It is the culmination of a 12-week program in which ten companies from around the globe relocated to the new Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence – Manufactory 4.0 – in Hartford, CT. Participants received mentorship, guidance and resources to help grow their ideas into viable businesses and bring new technologies to market.
Cantor Colburn was one of the first law firms in the country to have an Additive Manufacturing Practice Group, and, under the leadership of partner Dave Christensen, they specialize in providing strategic guidance to clients in this technology to compete successfully in an evolving market and realize all the opportunities afforded by their IP properties.
The program is the first of its kind for the city of Hartford, the first for Stanley Black & Decker, and the first in the additive manufacturing vertical for Techstars.
