An Accelerator Program for Startups

As part of the overall 3DEXPERIENCE Lab initiative, Dassault Systèmes´ accelerator program for startups will help facilitate and nurture disruptive product innovation. Along with other qualification criteria, program participants must have legal startup status. Their physical products must be able to be developed using 3D technologies and must address at least one of the following six themes: City, Life, Lifestyle, Internet of Thing, Ideation and Fablab. Throughout the program, selected startups will have access to Dassault Systèmes´ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, technical skills and mentoring - the same content, technology, applications and expertise that have transformed the design, engineering and manufacturing of most of the products society relies on today. In addition, Dassault Systèmes´ worldwide ecosystem will help accelerate the startups´ product launches and international presence.
