    We do not expect that you share any unprotected intellectual property or source code with us, either in your application or during the partnership.

    Please note the Frontier Partner licenses are for development, not commercialization. Before you have a launch-ready product, Siemens PLM Software will negotiate a separate, commercial license agreement with you.

    And after Siemens Frontier?

    When you are ready to commercialize, we will negotiate a commercial license with you, or terms for a commercial launch, and you will exit the Frontier Partner Program. Typical Terms & Conditions for a commercial license are viewable online after you submit your application. You can work with Siemens to leverage our channels, or you can go to market on your own; it is your choice. You may also wish to join the Siemens PLM Solution Partner Program.
