What readers are saying

As the founder of several manufacturing tech companies, I always look forward to reading the latest Future of Manufacturing Newsletter to give me up-to-date news and analysis from across the industry. I keep close track of what's going on, and Robin still somehow finds a ton that I don't see. This is a very unique service to the manufacturing community that I really applaud him for doing consistently over all of these years. It's really a required subscription for everyone in our space.

I studied Industrial Engineering but now work as a VC — there is no newsletter like Robin's, blending the world of manufacturing with the world of tech and startups. I'm looking forward to every edition of the newsletter — it's informative and entertaining: Robin's passion and experience for the space truly shine through.

Since the early days, I am reading the newsletter and enjoy getting some of the latest market developments. Especially the ecosystem overview is a great – constantly evolving and updated – insight into the market of solution providers in the different fields of Manufacturing.

The Future of Manufacturing Newsletter is my go-to source for curated, relevant articles in the digital manufacturing industry. It is the most comprehensive overview and news report of the industrial start-up landscape. The newsletter provides valuable insight into the inner workings and stories of successful industrial startups, corporate innovation, and how investors think about the industry. As a founder of a fast-growing industrial startup, I found this to be incredibly helpful.
