Altair has announced the availability of its simulation-driven innovation software to qualified startup companies through the new Altair Startup Programme.

Tailored to the needs of the startup community, the global programme offers preferential pricing for its simulation-driven design, computer-aided engineering, cloud computing and Internet of Things software. The programme also provides no-cost expert consulting to quickly ramp-up startup organisations with the multi-physics optimisation platform Altair HyperWorks, which is used by thousands of manufacturers worldwide.

“The startup community has always been at the forefront of innovation in new and high-growth markets of shared interest,” says Michael J. Kidder, SVP of Corporate Marketing of Altair. “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.”

The programme includes full-featured access to all Altair software titles, more than 150 Altair Partner Alliance software applications, instructor-led/online/self-paced training courses, expert consulting support and numerous co-marketing opportunities to build startup brand awareness.

“My business could not exist were it not for Altair and our working relationship has been absolutely fantastic,” states Adam Wais, Owner and Startup Co-founder of Rolo Bikes. “We chose HyperWorks 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.”

The Altair Startup Programme is also available and can be customised for business incubators and accelerators which are interested in expanding the resources available to support startup portfolios. SMB companies falling outside of the Altair Startup Programme qualification criteria may still apply for incentivised offers to get started with Altair solutions.
