Are you an engineering start-up, or emerging enterprise, that uses simulation software? Do you need access to the right software to assist in building virtual prototypes of new products? GE, General Electric South Africa (Pty) Ltd and ANSYS are looking for enterprises that have limited funding, and product revenue below USD 5 million.
GE Africa Innovation Centre (GE AIC) and Qfinsoft, local ANSYS Channel Partner for South Africa have partnered to provide start-up companies and emerging enterprises working in the manufacturing field with the opportunity to access the ANSYS’ multiphysics simulation portfolio, in an Open Innovation Challenge. The ‘Simulating the Future in Africa’ challenge will grant the winners one year’s free access to the ANSYS Startup Program.
The challenge aims to build a cohort of African startup companies and enterprises, who will design products and processes, using ANSYS software, that can be incorporated into the industries that GE operates in in Africa – industrial manufacturing, power, oil and gas, renewables, energy connections, transportation, mining, aviation, and healthcare.
ANSYS engineering simulation software enables users to design, build, modify and test complete virtual prototypes and bring their innovative products to market faster and more cost-effectively.
Entrants who qualify for the challenge will have access for one year to the multiphysics simulation portfolio within the ANSYS Startup Program – including structural, fluids and electromagnetics suites, and the ANSYS Customer Portal, which enables users to access online technical support, product tutorials, documentation and a technical support knowledge base.
The second challenge for 2017 closes at 23h59 on 15 October 2017.
Participants must meet entry criteria and are required to complete the submission form below. Ten winning enterprises will be targeted per challenge.
