Otta's take

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Autodesk supplies software that enables teams to collaborate, design, simulate, and fabricate their ideas in 3D, serving a range of industries such as engineering, product design, and entertainment. Founded in 1982, the company first delivered the AutoCAD system, a commercial computer-aided design and drafting software application, that is still seeing updated releases to this day.

Over 100 million people use Autodesk software, across many different industries and applications – in some of which it remains nearly irreplaceable. The company has an impressive history of diversification, which it continues to this day. For example, the 2022 acquisition of Moxion, a cloud-based platform for digital dailies used by leading filmmakers, bolstered the company’s offerings for the media and entertainment industry.

The rise of AR and VR technologies is driving modern growth in the computer-aided design market, creating space for Autodesk to expand further. On top of this, a recent shift to the popular SaaS model puts the company in an opportunistic position to seek further success.
