Metal 3D printing company Aurora Labs has raised US$1.82 million from a private investor.

A placement of shares is reportedly being made to a nominee entity of Tjeerd Barthen, a Dutch entrepreneur who has founded a healthcare business. Barthen now invests globally in disruptive technologies with scalable opportunities, Aurora said.

“I have followed the growth of the sector for some time and quickly identified that Aurora Labs as a technological leader with the potential to revolutionise manufacturing,’ said Barthen. ‘I look forward to following the team on their journey.’
