Unlocking Growth Potential: How the SOLIDWORKS Startup Program Empowers Startups to Scale Product Development 

   By Emma Krisfalusi on May 1, 2023

Startups face a unique set of challenges when it comes to product development. From limited resources to tight timelines, bringing a product to market quickly and efficiently can take time and effort. Fortunately, our SOLIDWORKS Startup program, powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, provides a comprehensive suite of tools and resources to help you scale your product development and get to market faster. 

What is the 3DEXPERIENCE Works Startup Program? 

Our 3DEXPERIENCE Works for Startups Program gives startups and entrepreneurs alike access to the same advanced product development tools that larger companies use. These tools, including SOLIDWORKS, Visualize, 3DEXPERIENCE Data Management, and more helps startups streamline their product development processes, improve collaboration, and reduce time to market.  

Key Benefits:  

  • 12 Months of FREE Software 
  • Online Training 
  • Comarketing opportunities 
  • On-hand tech support 

Accelerate Product Development with our SOLIDWORKS Start-Up Program 

Access to Advanced Product Development Tools 

One of the most significant benefits of our Startup program is access to advanced product development tools. This includes industry-leading software tools from the SOLIDWORKS portfolio, including tools for 3D design, simulation, data management, and more. These tools can help startups create better designs, simulate their products in real-world conditions, and manage their design data more efficiently. 

For example, startups can use SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD for free to create detailed product designs, simulate how those products will perform in real-world conditions using simulation tools like SOLIDWORKS Simulation, and manage all their product data using 3DEXPERIENCE. These tools can help startups create better products faster and with fewer errors, allowing them to bring products to market more quickly. 

Collaborative Product Development 

Collaboration is essential to successful product development, but it can be challenging for startups with limited resources and working remotely. This Startup program, powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a collaborative platform that allows teams to work together more effectively. 

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform includes various collaboration tools, including real-time messaging and project management tools. These can help startups collaborate more effectively, allowing team members to stay connected, share ideas, and collaborate to bring products to market. 

Reduced Time to Market 

Time to market is a critical factor for startups. Bringing a product to market quickly can help startups gain a competitive advantage, but it can be difficult without access to the right tools and resources. Our tailored Startup program can help startups reduce their time to market by streamlining their product development processes. 

For example, startups can use the platform’s simulation tools to test and refine their designs before they begin production. This can help them identify potential issues early on and adjust before they invest significant resources in production. Additionally, the platform’s data management tools can help startups manage their product data more efficiently, reducing the time to find and use critical information. 

Cost Savings 

Startups often have limited resources, so cost savings are essential to success. Our startup program gives you FREE software licenses for 12 months, allowing you to access advanced product development tools without the expense. This can help startups save money and invest more resources into other areas of their business. 

Additionally, the program provides startups access to various training and support resources, helping them get the most out of their investment. This can help startups maximize their resources and reduce the risk of costly errors and delays. 


As startups grow, their product development needs will change. Our program is designed to be scalable, allowing startups to adjust their usage as their needs change. 

For example, startups can add or remove users as needed and upgrade to more advanced software tools as their product development needs to evolve. This can help startups adapt to changing market conditions and scale their product development processes as their businesses grow. 


Overall, the 3DEXPERIENCE Works for Startups program offers startups various tools and resources to help them scale their product development. From advanced product development tools and collaboration platforms to reduced time to market and cost savings, the program provides startups with a comprehensive solution to their product development needs. With its scalability and focus on providing startups access to the same tools as larger companies, the 3DEXPERIENCE Works for Startups program is a valuable resource for startups looking to bring innovative products to market quickly and effectively.
