Ansys is committed to partnering with today’s entrepreneurs to help them grow into tomorrow’s industry leaders. The Ansys Startup Program is built for early-stage startups with limited funding and revenue, providing full access to simulation software bundles designed to help you develop your technology quickly and cost-effectively.
Eligible startups gain access to Ansys simulation solutions so you can build virtual prototypes of your products. These virtual prototypes can be modified and tested with simulation hundreds of times during the same time it would take to build and test one physical prototype — saving you time and money.
The Startup Program provides access to:
To be eligible, your startup company must:
- Be a privately held company
- Be less than 10 years old as a company
- Have less than USD $5 million in annual revenue
- Not be an engineering consulting or simulation services company
Watch how you can benefit:

Vector, a business startup, is addressing the small spacecraft market for launch vehicles. Because everything must shrink down when you are creating a nanosatellite launcher, engineers were challenged to scale everything while optimizing for a smaller class of payload. They leveraged ANSYS for all of the various fluid flows of the rocket engine including analysis of hot combustion gases in the engine as well as the various cold cryogenic liquids flowing into the engine to understand how they interact with the materials around them.Watch Video
Wireless power applications are unique in terms of power budget, distance, form factor and environment. To create custom, high-performance antennas to serve these applications, Nikola Labs relies on ANSYS HFSS for full-wave simulation and automatic geometry meshing.

Edisun, a business startup, leveraged software accessible through the ANSYS Startup Program to design and test their first product, PV Booster. PV Booster is the only dual-axis rooftop tracker for the commercial and industrial market providing 20% better economics on your installation by making more efficient use of solar panels. ANSYS software allowed Edisun to speed through design cycles, shorten their time to marked, and work very efficiently.Watch Video
HuMoTech engineers used ANSYS Mechanical to achieve a 25 percent weight reduction of the prosthesis end-effector, which allows their device to more accurately emulate a wider range of prosthetic devices. This reduces the design and testing time of prosthetic devices and results in a better fit, which improves the patient’s quality of life, while helping clinicians and researchers to be more effective.View Case Study
Learn how VOLABO used multiphysics simulation software to develop the first 48 V high power traction drive, which is 25 percent more efficient than conventional electrical drives and does not need rare earth magnets for production. What makes the ISCAD drive unique is the virtual gearbox that enables the motor to continuously adapt to the load profile and thus make better use of the battery capacity.View Case Study
XTPL is developing and implementing tailor-made solutions in terms of nanoprinting and ultraprecise deposition for several sectors, mainly in the field of printed electronics. Using ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS Fluent simulation solutions, they developed a model that helped them optimize the printing and material parameters, as well as the geometry of the printing nozzle, saving them time and money while improving their ultraprecise printing process.View Case Study
Thermoforming is an important polymer production process; the heating of the initial polymer sheet is essential for the quality, quantity and efficiency of the process. Read this case study to learn how watttron developed an innovative heating technology that allows inhomogeneous, precisely defined heating of surfaces on a very small scale. This innovation depends on a powerful algorithm that iteratively updates the temperature profile depending on the results of the thermoforming simulation using ANSYS solutions.
IRSI designs, operates and manufactures pyrolysis equipment that produces biochar from residual biomass. To optimize the pyrolysis system, the company uses ANSYS Fluent to simulate the thermal decomposition of the biomass under variable operating conditions.

Climeworks used computational fluid dynamics and structural simulation to become the creator of the first commercially available carbon capture technology. Its CO2 collector system captures, filters and concentrates the gas, which can then be used by greenhouses, the food and beverage industry and manufacturers of renewable products.
