2015 OBAA Finalist Profile: Valydate Inc.
Valydate Inc. is an electronic design verification company that has created patented technology that verifies complex electronics designs at the earliest possible stage in the hardware design cycle. The company is the world leader in schematic review and validation.
After five years of development, Valydate released VERA. VERA is a patented electronic design automation (EDA) tool that allows clients to execute complex verification on their site. Clients like Alcatel-Lucent, Ciena, Oracle, Juniper, General Dynamics, and many others have used Valydate’s technology to increase their electronic design quality and get to market faster. Today, Valydate’s VERA technology is being used by various Ontario companies to differentiate themselves against oversees competition.
Valydate creates software that they license, and because of this, the organization sees no need to grow their employee base anywhere else in the world but in Ontario. As Valydate’s headquarters continues to increase in head count, they will continue build stronger relationships with other countries related to sales and export growth, but maintain their workforce in Canada.
