While 85% of Fortune 500 companies use mathematical optimization, smaller startups and scaleups in the tech world are catching on to the value an industry-leading solver like Gurobi can bring to their software solutions. In fact, 70% of top global tech companies now use Gurobi.
Gurobi wants to be more than just a supplier to the ISVs that utilize its mathematical optimization technology; it wants to be a partner. That is the motivation behind the new Gurobi Accelerator Program.
The 36-month program aims to create joint value between Gurobi and solution providers by setting and achieving shared business, product, and revenue goals.
“It’s not just a supplier relationship. We see it as a partnership. We want to support these companies and go hand-in-hand with them. If they grow, we grow together,” explained Jan Schwarzkopf, Gurobi Account Manager – Europe Ecosystem.
The Gurobi Accelerator Program
Gurobi is offering a partnership with companies in the final stages of developing a software solution that utilizes its optimization technology. Companies will receive ongoing technical support, which is a critical asset in these final development stages.
In addition to technical support, companies will receive business and marketing support to accelerate their product’s time to market and maximize sales once launched.
This program is not just for companies in the development stage, though. ISVs that utilize Gurobi for products already on the market will also be eligible. The program’s ongoing technical and business support is essential for any company that wants to enhance its product to stay ahead in the highly competitive software market.
Benefits of the Program
By participating in the program, ISVs will receive the following:
- Easy Access to Gurobi’s Technology
Companies will receive access to Gurobi’s best-in-class technology, including a product license based on their business needs.
- Ongoing Sales and Marketing Support
The program includes guidance on sales and marketing strategies. Gurobi will work hand-in-hand with the companies to advise on the best way to market their product and maximize sales once launched.
- Quarterly Engagement for Business Strategy
Gurobi will meet at least quarterly with the companies to assist with high-level business strategy. They will also get expert guidance on formulating and executing business goals.
Who Should Consider This Program?
The Gurobi Accelerator Program is not limited to ISVs currently using Gurobi’s technology for their software solutions. Companies using an open-source solver or competitive commercial solver are also encouraged to consider the program.
For those using either an open-source or commercial solver, Gurobi poses the following questions:
- Are you or your end customers satisfied with the current performance of your software application?
- Does your relationship with your current optimization technology supplier support your business growth?
If the answer to one or both of these questions is no, the Gurobi Accelerator Program might be the solution.
The software industry is getting more competitive every year, and ISVs need to ensure their solutions use every advantage available. The Gurobi Accelerator Program is an excellent opportunity to access leading optimization solver technology, as well as hands-on support from experts who want companies to succeed with optimization.
