Bauhaus Gets Boost from Texas

2D animation and special effects software provider Bauhaus Software has secured funding from the State of Texas Emerging Technology Fund (TETF), which it will use to expand its development team, invest in research, develop new products and amp up marketing. Other initiatives for Bauhaus include expanding R&D exchange programs and internship opportunities for students at South Texas colleges and universities.

“We are tremendously pleased by to see the state investing in our company, and helping support our drive to preserve and extend the art of animation,” comments Bauhaus president Paul Ford. “This capital investment will allow us to both accelerate our development schedule, and significantly expand our product offerings. ‘

‘The Bauhaus team represents the epitome of the entrepreneurial spirit by working diligently to deliver world-class software worldwide. This investment underlines their ongoing commitment and delivery for their customers,’ adds John Dascher, director of investment services for the San Antonio Technology Accelerator Initiative (SATAI), a private, not-for-profit Texas corporation which worked closely with Bauhaus in the grant application process.

Bauhaus’ client roster includes Film Roman, Cartoon Network, Klasky-Csupo, and Pixar. The company’s Mirage suite of products for Windows and Mac OS X is available through both the Bauhaus Software website at www.bauhaussoftware.com, and authorized distributors worldwide.
