What is the Business Support?

Reviewed 09/10/23

The Solid Edge for Startups program provides eligible startups with free access to a complete solution for product development, including CAD, CAM and CAE software.

New businesses need access to the best tools and technologies to bring their ideas to market quickly, but they often lack the means to acquire the professional resources they need. The struggle to maintain a consistent funding stream, the time required to learn new skills, and the challenges of work/life balance—especially when you’re still working a day job—can doom great concepts before they have a chance to take hold.

What’s included in the Solid Edge for Startups program?
