1. Why has Siemens introduced the Frontier Partner Program?

Siemens realizes that many cutting-edge solutions and new technologies come from entrepreneurs, and thus we try to work as effectively as we can with startups to accelerate their development. The Frontier Partner Program is one of many ways that Siemens partners with startups to add value to our core and future businesses so we can better serve our customers.

2. Are you only interested in software companies as Frontier partners? 

No! We are offering software but some Frontier partners are hardware companies (developing printers, robots, etc.)

3. I am a student and have a great idea in one of your themes. Can I still apply to the Frontier Partner Program? 

Sorry, we currently accept application only from established early-stage business entities.

4. My company is developing a great solution that might be interesting to Siemens, but it is not related to any of the current open themes. How can I apply? 

We currently accept applications only within the open themes: 3D Printing, Robotics, and Augmented & Virtual Reality. If you would like to propose a new theme, please email us at frontier.us@siemens.com

5. How would I benefit from the Siemens Frontier Partner Program? 

You will build your solution on top of proven and scalable technologies provided by Siemens PLM Software. Besides, you will be able to leverage well-established sales channels to get your solution to market faster. 

6. Will Siemens keep confidentiality of my solution?

We ask you not to submit any confidential information at any stage of the program lifecycle.

7. Who will decide if my solution enters the program or not? 

We have a team of experts from Siemens Technology to Business and Siemens PLM Software in each theme looking at the Frontier Partner applications.

8. What is the program timeframe?

The program lifecycle is one year. We expect you to develop your solution within this timeframe.

9. What if I do not complete my development within my 1 year Frontier partner timeframe?

If you are still making good progress then you can apply for the extension. We decide case-by-case. 

10. Is there a deadline for submitting a Frontier application? 

No, you may apply at any time. Applications are accepted and reviewed on a continuous basis.
