Our vision and mission
Our vision is to help our clients profitably engineer better materials and processes through digital solutions.
Our mission is to simplify material engineering and to create new standards using digital material models.
It all started here...
Math2Market GmbH was founded in September 2011 by the developers of the GeoDict software from the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITWM) in Kaiserslautern. There, Andreas Wiegmann and his team already laid the foundation for GeoDict in 2001. The software is now continuously developed and marketed by the employees of Math2Market GmbH. All rights to GeoDict are owned by Math2Market GmbH since 2013. Since its foundation with three employees, Math2Market GmbH has been able to increase its number of employees tenfold and convince almost 200 german and international clients, some of them very renowned.
Math2Market is registered as trademark in the German Patent and Trademark Office.
Math2Market GmbH thanks the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft and the Fraunhofer ITWM for their friendly support during the spin-off and for the good and continuous cooperation since then.
