Business, Finance | Fri 16 Oct | Author – Business & Finance

Fuseami, a new start-up company from the TSSG research and innovation centre has been accepted into the FI-C3 accelerator programme.

FI-C3 accelerator programme is focused on developing new internet services. Out of 352 entries from across Europe, only 28 companies were selected for funding. The competitive process was tough with multiple cut-offs before the final pitches, where the final 28 winners were selected.

The Waterford start-up is focused on helping business people to network better at conferences and events.

Kevin Doolin, founder of Fuseami, developed the concept out of several years of work on a project based on IoT technologies and has spent the last two years working on the technology with software developers from TSSG, with the support of Enterprise Ireland.

Barry Downes, CEO of TSSG, said: “Kevin Doolin has worked on pervasive computing for over 10 years and Fuseami is the accumulation of those years of research. His work has taken the pain out of business networking at conferences. By using Fuseami, you maximise your networking opportunity and find the best connections, no matter how matter how many people are at the conference.”
