Get3DSmart Partners With EquityNet to Solve 3D Printing’s “Chicken & Egg” Dilemma

No business can survive without capital. Finding it is another matter.

We’ve written a lot about the chicken and egg dilemma of revenue vs. resources. You know the deal…

 You can’t create revenue without resources, and you can’t get resources until you generate revenue.

Investment Capital

Roughly $25 billion in early stage venture capital was invested in the U.S. last year. Nearly half of that originated out of Silicon Valley. It’s another chicken and egg scenario. The closer you get, the more competitive it gets. The farther away you go, the smaller the pie. Little fish in an ocean, or big fish in a puddle? Your choice.


3D printing is a hardware business. Getting hardware to market is a slow and expensive proposition. Even if you can get your products manufactured and shipped, you’ll need to float the inventory and receivables.

3D Printing Is Underserved

Sure, some big deals have been done in 3D printing. Companies like Carbon and Desktop Metal got big resources right out of the blocks. But for every Silicon Valley darling, there are thousands of startups that are just trying to get out of the gates. Small teams with big goals. They need resources too.
