It’s only been a week since the previous show, but Printing Money is back already with Episode 18. Certain events call for Printing Money’s coverage, and the recent 2nd Annual DC Fly-In from the Additive Manufacturing Coalition (AddMfgCoalition) is one of those. Initiatives such as the Fly-In help to shape the government funding and policies that often lead to facilitating the very deals that Printing Money is famous for analyzing.

For Episode 18, Danny is joined by Mark Burnham, Director of Policy for the AddMfgCoalition. Danny and Mark discuss the genesis of the AddMfgCoalition, its mission, and the efforts the coalition is making on behalf of the 3D printing industry. We hear about who attended the Fly-In earlier this month, the format of the Fly-In, and a number of the topics that were covered as additive manufacturing representatives met with members of Congress and their staff, and even representatives from the White House.

The event featured seventy meetings on Capitol Hill concerning R&D Tax Credits, the national defense industrial strategy, medical policy, the Council on Supply Chain Resilience, and much more.  All in the name of additive manufacturing.  All in just two and half days.

Please enjoy this episode and stay tuned in coming months for our next episodes analyzing all the deals fit for coverage as well as the Q1 2024 public company earnings reports.
