Bauhaus Software, a leading provider of 2D animation and vfx tools, has received a strategic investment from the State of Texas Emerging Technology Fund (TETF). This funding will be used to expand Bauhaus development team, invest in more research, develop new products, and augment marketing. Bauhaus is also focused on furthering relationships with South Texas colleges & universities, through both R&D exchange programs and internships.
"We are tremendously pleased to see the state investing in our company, and helping support our drive to preserve and extend the art of animation," said Paul Ford, president of Bauhaus. "This capital investment will allow us to both accelerate our development schedule, and significantly expand our product offerings.

SATAI worked closely with Bauhaus in the grant application process.
