Octeract develops massively parallel deterministic global optimization software. The London-based company’s innovative software finds global solutions to large-scale, non-linear optimization problems that were previously considered impossible to solve. The company was founded on the premise that optimization is extremely powerful, but unnecessarily complicated. The founders believe that users need to know and do much more than just write a correct model: they need to write code, understand complicated data structures and interfaces in C, deal with edge cases, etc. 

The Product

The company has two upcoming products: The Octeract Engine is a unique, massively parallel deterministic global optimization engine and the Octeract Reformulator is a powerful tool for symbolic manipulation. 

With its proprietary solutions, the company aims to further empower engineers and scientists all over the world by giving them access to modern and advanced tools for addressing large-scale, global problems.
