Dezineforce raises another $1m for cloud-based engineering software

Dezineforce, a developer of software for big engineering projects like new aircraft, has raised approximately £1m of additional equity from existing and new shareholders. Lead investor was the South East Seed Fund, managed by Finance South East (FSE) and supported by existing investors DN Capital and IQ Capital.

Dezineforce develops and sells software specifically designed and optimised for design engineers performing computer analysis and simulation. It’s based on the Microsoft Windows HPC platform. It’s sold either as an on-site high performance computing appliance, or as a cloud based on-demand service. Basically it lets engineers get on with designing a car or aircraft, while taking care of the heavy lifting on data handling and simulation. It’s also a Microsoft ‘BizSpark One’ partner.

Dezineforce, was spun out of Southampton University in 2007 by Professors, Simon Cox, Andy Keane and Nigel Shadbolt.
