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...
In September 2011, several members of the GeoDict development team founded Math2Market GmbH as a spin-off from the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITWM) in Kaiserslautern.
The foundations of GeoDict, laid by Andreas Wiegmann and his team at ITWM starting in 2001, are now continuously developed and marketed by Math2Market's staff.
Since the spin-off by three developers, the number of Math2Market's employees has increased more than tenfold and its international customer base has further expanded. The intellectual property rights to the GeoDict software belong to Math2Market GmbH since January 1st, 2013.
Math2Market is registered as trademark in the German Patent and Trademark Office.
Math2Market acknowledges the support from the Fraunhofer Society and Fraunhofer ITWM during the spin-off and continues working in close cooperation with Fraunhofer ITWM.
What can Math2Market do for you?
As software company, we develop and license GeoDict and offer you a complete service package:
- Training for the complete software package or specific modules to use GeoDict efficiently and profitably.
- In development projects, implementation of innovative features in the software according to your needs.
- In application projects, solutions for your specific material engineering issues.
- In research projects, discovery of new applications of GeoDict for cutting-edge scientific disciplines.
