“For start-ups, speed is really important, so you need to move quickly. MATLAB is really a powerful tool, especially in the research environment where you need to test something, because MATLAB has embedded functions and tool boxes that are available to us. So we can increase the productivity, increase the quality, and reduce the waste.”

Praveen Penmetsa, Productive Machines

“Almost every person or company has a license for MATLAB. And we use it for analysis, for presentation, for understanding what's happening, what's changed, as well as evaluating new types of algorithms, new types of approaches.”

Byron Stanley, Wavesense
