Algoryx Handpicked for Prestigious European Space Accelerator Program

Algoryx is strengthening its position as a Space Tech company by joining the most prominent startup and scaleup accelerator in the European region: The Cassini Business Accelerator. Together with 20 other innovative space companies, Algoryx has been selected as a frontrunner in the European space and deep tech industry.

The Cassini Business Accelerator is the biggest space accelerator in Europe, bringing together the top space startups and scaleups in the region. Algoryx has been accepted as one of the 21 companies to be included in the second batch of the accelerator program, which will run for six months starting in November 2023. 

Based in Umeå, Sweden, Algoryx is a global leader in digital physics, serving sectors from construction, mining and maritime to aerospace. The company offers cutting-edge simulations for applications like space robotics and lunar construction. Algoryx’s end-to-end solutions streamline design, training, and validation, and enable AI-driven autonomy.

“The Cassini Accelerator program will provide learning and network opportunities that can put Algoryx on a different, faster trajectory as a space company.” 

Kenneth Bodin, CEO, Algoryx.

The core technology, AGX Dynamics, is a physics engine that simulates contact mechanics and friction with outstanding performance and speed, and high transfer to reality. 

A Powerful Boost for Algoryx as a Space Company 

“Being accepted to this Business Accelerator really strengthens our belief in Algoryx’s simulation solutions as a technological catalyst for the rapidly growing field of space machine engineering”, says Algoryx CEO Kenneth Bodin.

“Even though Algoryx has 16 years of experience as a supplier of physics simulation solutions for machine and robot manufacturers, we are still at an early stage as a technology partner for the space sector” he continues.

“The Cassini Accelerator program will provide learning and network opportunities that can put Algoryx on a different, faster trajectory as a space company. We also se many opportunities for transfer of technology and innovation between Space and other vertical, such as machine autonomy and robotics for construction, mining, factories, forestry and maritime.” 

Part of a Larger Initiative From the European Commission

Launched in 2023, the Cassini accelerator is a component of the CASSINI Space Entrepreneurship Initiative, an effort from the European Commission to boost European space companies that also encompasses a €1 space investment facility, prizes, events, and other ecosystem-strengthening activities.
