Disrupting conventional manufacturing with novel 3D printing and thermoforming technology
Headquarters Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands
What the Future creates breakthrough batch-to-mass manufacturing technologies with a focus on accelerating the transition to sustainability at an industrial scale. It reinvents existing processes with breakthrough perspectives, helping manufacturers realize the untapped possibilities of engineering, digital design, and 3D technology to minimize production cost, business risk, and environmental impact. The company's technology is currently utilized in two commercial applications, custom confections (ice pops, chocolate, gummies) and circular footwear production.
With a long value chain, traditional manufacturing takes a long time to market new products. It is costly and complex for brands to ramp up or scale down mass production, making it more difficult to meet customer demand. With their patent-protected and breakthrough manufacturing technology, What The Future enables localized manufacturing that is more sustainable, cheaper, and more agile. In doing so, they are remaking the future — of our products, our industries, and our planet.
