MD (October 2020) – Trivance
Design, a Frederick-based 3D print shop has just announced the launch of their new
friendly and easy-to-use website. The site provides information related
to the process as well as capabilities of extrusion-based 3D printing that can help move client’s
ideas into reality.
“We were newbies to 3D printing when
we dove into the Trivance Design website project”, said Stephanie Ottavan,
President of Door No. 3 Design, Inc. “In talking with Thomas about helping people
who were also new to 3D printing, it was clear the site needed to be created
with the user experience in mind. We streamlined navigation and created links
throughout the site so users can quickly get to the information they need. It
was also important for us to weave Tom’s personality through the site to give
the feeling you are working with a real person who is skilled, knowledgeable,
and will help you get your project done from start to finish.”
Design is ready to help inventors and artists using the 3D printing process. They
can use the convenient contact form to effortlessly and affordably
receive a consultation about their design, then have it printed and sent to
them. Not all designs work with all types of printing. If there is a better
option than extrusion printing, Trivance Design experts will recommend it.
“My target audience is a person who has an
idea in mind and would like to translate it into a real object. To riff on an
old Volkswagen commercial, ‘Inventors wanted’. I can help by understanding
their design, then using 3D printing to make it,” said Thomas Stein, the Founder
of Trivance Design.

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE ANNOUNCES 51 “BUILD TO SCALE” GRANTS TOTALING $47 MILLIONTO FUEL INNOVATION AND TECH-BASED ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Contact: EDA Public Affairs Department, (202) 482-4085
October 5, 2022
WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo announced that the Department’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) is awarding 51 “Build to Scale” grants – totaling $47 million – to organizations that support technology entrepreneurs, catalyze innovation and fuel economic growth.
EDA’s “Build to Scale” program provides annual grants that aim to accelerate technology entrepreneurship by increasing inclusive access to entrepreneurial support and startup capital. The 2022 awardees will leverage an additional $48 million in matching funds from a variety of private and public sector sources. These EDA investments support advanced manufacturing, bioscience, clean energy and blue economy clusters in regions throughout the United States.
"Strengthening technology ecosystems are a critical key to the Biden Administration's efforts to build a stronger America,” said Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo. “Innovation and entrepreneurship have long been keys to American success and will continue to strengthen our collective economic and national security, as well as individual prosperity and well-being.”
"EDA is proud to partner with this year's 'Build to Scale' grantees as they invest in entrepreneurs and create equitable access to capital in their communities," said Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development Alejandra Y. Castillo. "These projects will give the next generation of industry-leading companies a seminal boost that will result in job creation and private investment – potentially transforming a regional economy and creating economic opportunity beyond what we can foresee.”
The 2022 Build to Scale program was comprised of two competitions––the Venture Challenge and the Capital Challenge. The Venture Challenge supports programs that enable high-growth technology entrepreneurship and foster inclusive access to proven entrepreneurship support models. The Capital Challenge increases access to capital in communities where risk capital is in short supply by providing operational support for early-stage investment funds, networks, and training programs that focus on both traditional and hybrid equity-based financing.
