About Gurobi

Gurobi Optimization is focused on providing the best optimization solver possible, with outstanding support, and no-surprises pricing.

Our Mission

Gurobi is in the business of helping companies make better decisions through the use of prescriptive analytics. In addition to providing the best math programming solver, as well as tools for distributed optimization and optimization in the cloud, the company is known for its outstanding support and no-surprises pricing. That is all we do. We don't have competing priorities and we don't market applications that may compete with your own. We have one goal, and that goal is to make you successful with optimization.

Founded by arguably the most experienced and respected team in optimization today, Gurobi is rapidly growing as more and more companies see the benefits of working with a partner so focused on providing the best solver and the best support possible.


Industry Leading Performance

To deliver the best solver possible we are constantly looking to push the performance frontier for linear, quadratic, and mixed-integer programming forward while delivering the reliability and stability our clients demand.

The computational progress in linear, quadratic and mixed integer programming over the last twenty years has been nothing short of remarkable, enabling business, scientific and other applications that literally would have been unapproachable just a few short years ago. The Gurobi founders have been at the forefront of these developments.

The Gurobi suite of optimization products represent completely new implementations, redesigned from the ground up to fully exploit the latest mathematical and “engineering” improvements in the underlying methodologies, as well as developments in modern desktop computing hardware and programming environments; moreover, the Gurobi team is committed not just to providing the best technology now available, but to continuing to steadily improve that technology.


The Most Experienced Team in the Industry

All we do at Gurobi is focus on building the best solvers possible and supporting our users to help them be successful. To that end, we have assembled the most experienced development team in the industry to ensure our solvers are not only the right choice today, but that we continue to improve performance and add features to meet the evolving needs of the industry going forward.

In addition, we have assembled the largest support team of PhD-level optimization experts in the industry, and we give our customers direct access for quick and insightful answers. Customers familiar with other optimization companies consistently tell us what a difference it makes to have access to a support organization they can actually reach and who know what they are talking about.

There are multiple larger companies you can choose to buy optimization solvers from, however, there isn't a company with a more experienced or larger team of optimization experts focused solely on building the best solvers and providing you the best support possible.


Flexible Licensing and "No-Surprises" Pricing

Gurobi Optimization is focused on more than just solver technology. Gurobi has introduced innovative and flexible licensing and delivery models. Gurobi was the first to offer free, full-featured licenses for the academic community, the first with a cloud computing offering, and the first to offer parallel solvers at no extra charge.

The Gurobi Optimizer is the only high-end optimization solver with clear, upfront pricing with simpler and more flexible licensing terms. Gurobi licenses can be used for development, deployment, or both, and there is no limit on the number of specific applications you may use with a given Gurobi license.

Importantly, since we have a simple license manager and don't use complicated pricing based on the speed of your processor, there are no suprise audits or nasty cost surprises when you upgrade to faster hardware.
