Turbocharge Your Startup's Growth with Altair's Startup Program

We were young once, too. More than 35 years ago, we were a small, enterprising startup looking to change the world. We know what it’s like to dream big because that’s what we do every day. We know that big dreams present big challenges. We understand that turning dreams into reality takes a little help, which is why we’ve created the Altair Startup Program. Our tailored packages for product development, data analytics (DA), artificial intelligence (AI), and high-performance computing (HPC) – including a special offer with our partner, Oracle – will help you innovate, reduce development times, lower costs, and solve any challenge.

*Consultancies and startups in engineering services are ineligible for the Altair Startup Program.
