What our vendors say about us

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Shared EDA so that they can provide the benefits of the ANSYS Startup Program to eligible startups within their membership portfolio.


ANSYS’ simulation tools can have a tremendous positive impact for a startup performing electronics design.Whether an engineer is interested in electronics cooling, mechanical vibration or thermal performance, or RF and signal integrity concerns, employing simulation early – at the concept and design stages – can save a startup considerable time and money. By iterating, enhancing and making mistakes in the virtual world of simulation, engineers decrease the cost, time and risk associated with physical prototypes.


The ANSYS Startup Program exists to provide eligible, early-stage startups affordable access to our industry-leading engineering simulation software to grow their businesses quickly and cost-effectively. The ANSYS Startup Program’s mission aligns with Shared EDA’s ultimate goal of helping independent companies access software tools that are often used by larger corporations.


This collaboration is a win-win-win. It provides growth for the ANSYS Startup Program, benefits Shared EDA’s eligible members and provides qualified startups with access to the world-class simulation tools used by 97 of the top 100 industrial companies on the Fortune 500 list.”

ANSYS Startup Program

Start-up program
Shared EDA is proud that it has an agreement with Ansys to deliver Bundles of software in a start-up program. It is an example of how vendors can expand their reach into Small companies throughout the Benelux. The Ansys Start-up program offers a bundle of tools for a single start-up price. This makes the tools affordable for Start-ups.

Shared Licenses

Additional to the Start-up program, Shared EDA is empowered by Ansys to deliver shared licenses to its clients. The shared licenses enable multiple SMEs to share one single license. By sharing a license, costs are reduced. This makes these licenses affordable for SMEs.

The company

Ansys is a perhaps the largest supplier of simulation tools in the world. If you’ve ever seen a rocket launch, flown on an airplane, driven a car, used a computer, touched a mobile device, crossed a bridge, or put on wearable technology, chances are you’ve used a product where ANSYS software played a critical role in its creation. ANSYS is the global leader in engineering simulation. We help the world’s most innovative companies deliver radically better products to their customers. By offering the best and broadest portfolio of engineering simulation software, we help them solve the most complex design challenges and engineer products limited only by imagination.

Their products

ANSYS offers a comprehensive software suite that spans the entire range of physics, providing access to virtually any field of engineering simulation that a design process requires. Organizations around the world trust ANSYS to deliver the best value for their engineering simulation software investment.

Areas where Ansys products apply include Fluids, Structures, Electronics, semiconductors, systems, Embedded Software, 3D Design and Engineering Simulation Platform.

Simulation-driven product development takes engineering simulation to another level ― the unequalled depth and breadth of our software coupled with its unmatched engineered scalability, comprehensive multiphysics foundation and adaptive architecture set our technology apart from other CAE tools. These ANSYS advantages add value to the engineering design process by delivering efficiency, driving innovation and reducing physical constraints enabling simulated tests that might not be possible otherwise.

Shared EDA offers the Structural and Fluids Bundle and the Electromagnetics Bundle.
