Emil Johansson - ADAXIS (Venture Award)

Nominated by 

EIT Manufacturing

The innovation 

ADAXIS creates software which makes it possible to program robotic arms as large-scale 3D printers for on-demand manufacturing of products in metals, plastics, concrete, and composites.

EIT Community support 

The founders of ADAXIS have had a close connection to EIT since 2019. The team bonded together during the EIT Manufacturing project SoftDREAM which had the aim to develop software tools for hybrid robotic additive manufacturing. The ambition to create a company based on the project outcome was described already in the project proposal and EIT Manufacturing therefore actively supported the business development in the early stages.

After the incorporation of ADAXIS in January 2021, EIT Manufacturing took an advisory role which later led to their participating in the first round of fund-raising, together with other VCs and business angels. Currently, EIT Manufacturing holds an observer seat in ADAXIS board. The founders of ADAXIS believe that without the EIT Manufacturing network and community their innovation would not have been possible.
