TOffeeAM, a startup founded by researchers in Imperial College London, has raised £1 million in seed funding.

The company, founded in 2019, develops design software for additive manufacturing (AM) which it says enables designs of higher complexity than that possible with standard design processes. Its Toffee software can also help reduce the total number of parts and increase resilience and is suitable for the aeronautics and automotive industries, TOffeeAM said.

The company was founded by Dr Francesco Montomoli (CEO), Dr Marco Pietropaoli (COO), and Dr Audrey Gaymann (CTO).

‘This funding will give TOffeeAM the opportunity to expand our team with expert engineers and other team members and continue to scale the solution to serve our rapidly expanding customer base,’ said Dr Francesco Montomoli. ‘We are at the beginning of an exciting journey, and this funding will help drive our growth and the wider use of this transformative technology across a variety of industries.’
