Altium, a leader in Smart System Design Automation, 3D PCB design (Altium Designer) and embedded software development (TASKING), announced that it has signed on as a three year sponsor of the Association of Cleantech Incubators of New England (ACTION), a leading network of cleantech incubators dedicated to accelerating the success of early-stage companies engaged in the development of clean technology.
As part of this agreement, Altium will provide the ACTION community with access to its award winning PCB design software Altium Designer. Building on its industry leading native 3D PCB design systems, this latest version delivers improved support and new features to facilitate design reuse and more efficient electronics design.
“Our mission is to help inspire our community of entrepreneurs in the Greater New England area to solve some of the biggest global energy and environmental problems facing our world today,” stated Gillian Isabelle, Executive Director at ACTION. “However, a key factor in achieving this lies in our ability to provide them with access to the design tools and resources they need. Altium’s ongoing involvement and support of our programs is invaluable in helping our up and coming design engineers to thrive and innovate.”
Membership in ACTION is open to organizations that are dedicated to accelerating the success of early-stage companies engaged in the development of technology, products, or services for the cleantech industry.
“We are continually looking for new ways to invest in programs and sponsorship opportunities that align with our organizational goal of inspiring innovation among the next generation of electronics designers,” Dan Fernsebner, Director of Global Services and Developer Network at Altium. “Therefore, it was a natural fit to partner with ACTION in support of some of the brightest minds in clean technology and we look forward to a productive, on-going relationship.”
