The ANSYS Startup Program gives you full access to simulation software bundles that are built and priced to help entrepreneurs grow their business quickly and cost-effectively. We realize that in the early stages of starting a business there is often limited funding and little to no revenue. We created this program to help you grow your business to its full potential using the best tools possible — ANSYS simulation solutions — with a minimal initial investment. Many of the world’s greatest companies began as startups and ANSYS is committed to partnering with today’s startups to help them grow into tomorrow’s industry leaders.

As a partner in the Startup Program, you will gain instant access to ANSYS solutions so you can start building virtual prototypes of your new products. These virtual prototypes can be modified and tested with simulation hundreds of times in the same time it would take to build and test one physical prototype –saving you time and money as you work to perfect your product design. The partnership gives you access to our full portfolio of multiphysics simulation bundles, including the Structural and Fluids bundle, the Electromagnetics bundle and the Embedded Software bundle. Additional benefits include marketing opportunities with ANSYS and access to our Customer Portal for self-guided support, technical requests and more.

Regardless of whether you are an individual startup, an incubator working with a variety of startups, or another key participant in the ecosystem, find out below how ANSYS can benefit you.

Startup Program Spotlight

Vector and ANSYS

Vector

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.

Edisun and ANSYS

Edisun

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.

 HuMoTech Case Study

HuMoTech

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.

volabo GmbH Case Study

volabo GmbH

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.

wattron

wattron

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.

Climeworks

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.
