Start-ups have different needs at each phase of their lifecycle.

The programme is excepted to leverage Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform, applications, expertise, and community of mentors and services, and provide a range of tailored solutions and different types of engagement to accompany innovators at every step of their development – from seed to late stage.

More than 1,000 start-ups, entrepreneurs and makers have reportedly already embarked with Dassault Systèmes on digitally developing real-world products and experiences.

Through the Global Entrepreneur Program, they can use virtual worlds, collaboration, collective intelligence and communities to facilitate innovation, creativity, and to bring ideas to fruition.

Innovators can advance projects integrating Internet of Things and other technologies, design and test products, access online prototyping services using the latest 3D printing methods, and share knowledge and knowhow with a network of professionals, experts and peers from a variety of industries.

Recognising that start-ups have different needs at each phase of their lifecycle, Dassault Systèmes noted that a one-size-fits-all technological, mentoring and marketing approach falls short of providing the diverse levels of support required to get products to market faster.

Start-ups also face numerous inherent business challenges, including funding, staffing, IT infrastructure and sales.

Director of corporate strategy innovation at Dassault Systèmes, Frédéric Vacher commented: “Entrepreneurs have told us that they value the social community of an incubator above all else, and we listened.

“We are a catalyst and enabler for large companies and start-ups alike to create concepts, bring virtual and real worlds together, and empower a renaissance of innovation.”
