Introspective Systems is women-owned applied science engineering firm developing performance based modeling, simulation and optimization tools for complex systems. The company seeks to improve the engineering process increasing resource efficiency of complex systems. Its first products, SIM•pleXity and Eco-SIM (with Pangaeon), streamline the design of sustainable communities giving the architectural and urban designer real-time engineering analysis and feedback on the sustainability of a project. The architect can concentrate on the architecture rather than the engineering analysis.
The company is currently pre-revenue, but is in final stages of securing equity investment. It anticipates profitability in late 2013.
