Simulation software provider Altair, Troy, Michigan, USA, has launched the Altair Global Startup Program, making its simulation software available to qualified hardware start-ups at preferential pricing. This includes the company’s software solutions for simulation-driven design, computer-aided engineering, cloud computing and the Internet of Things, which are widely used in the Additive Manufacturing industry.

The programme also offers includes access to more than 150 Altair Partner Alliance software applications; instructor-led, online or self-paced training courses; expert consulting support and numerous co-marketing opportunities.

Michael J Kidder, SVP of Corporate Marketing at Altair, stated, “The start-up community has always been at the forefront of innovation in new and high-growth markets of shared interest. This programme provides a powerful vehicle for Altair to connect more directly with hardware startups to help mitigate product performance and financial risks early, realise a successful exit and cost-effectively scale for growth with Altair’s open-architecture simulation solutions.”

Adam Wais, owner and co-founder of Rolo Bikes, which has worked with Altair, stated, “My business could not exist were it not for Altair and our working relationship has been absolutely fantastic. We chose Altair HyperWorksTM because it offers us the most powerful tools for our optimisation and development tasks all within one suite. I’m not sure we’d have been able to take what we had to market without Altair.”

Altair added that its Startup Program is also available to, and can be customised for, business incubators and accelerators who are interested in expanding the resources available to support start-up portfolios. SMB companies falling outside of the Altair Startup Program qualification criteria may still apply for incentivised offers to get started with Altair solutions.
