"By taking advantage of a broad, networked manufacturing base, Fictiv is capable of providing components at the speed needed by customers. The goal is to make this happen as quickly as possible for customers, who otherwise wouldn’t be able to quickly scale up to meet the challenge."

"It's case studies like TransMed7 that set Fictiv apart from traditional contract manufacturers, and why investors just poured $100 million into Fictiv through its Series E round."

"Fictiv was founded back in 2013 to address some of the biggest pain points of bringing products to market. The San Francisco startup runs what it calls a Digital Manufacturing Ecosystem, which is, effectively, a user-friendly marketplace for doing just that."

"Since the beginning of the pandemic, Dave Evans said companies have been forced to reckon with the shortcomings of their business models, and many looked to robots and other technology solutions for answers. "It was kind of like this 'oh crap moment' in 2020. Then in 2021, it was about finding solutions. Now in Q1 of 2022, we're seeing those solutions implemented."

"Right now, manufacturing and supply chain systems are in the midst of a massive transformation, and capital is already flowing to the companies doing the work." - Dave Evans

"An overwhelming 88% of manufacturers want to thin their supplier pool, according to a survey by on-demand digital manufacturing company Fictiv."
