DCU Invent Fusion Programme Launches Oct 20th

The DCU Invent Fusion Programme launches to provide budding Tech Entrepreneurs with Research Expertise and Funding.

In a world driven by technology, all aspiring tech entrepreneurs with amazing ideas are being called to come forward and apply to the new Fusion Programme. If you have toyed with an idea but have not had the research or funding support, then join DCU on Thursday 20th October at 6 pm in The Academy, Pearse Street, Dublin 2.

Fusion aims to match entrepreneurs with breakthrough ideas with the best technologists and the right funding. Fusion works with people who have early-stage technology concepts, offering them the state-of-the-art research and development resources they need, to bring their products to market.

For the selected projects, grant funding will be provided (typically up to €500k) to build the technology, over an 18- month period. Successful applicants will be brought into the University and matched to a talented team of researchers with the appropriate expertise. Salary support, ongoing training and mentoring will all be provided throughout the project, before finally spinning out a new company led by the entrepreneur.

Paddy O’Boyle, Director of Business Development at DCU Invent commented, “DCU’s Fusion Programme enables the University to increase the pool of ideas by finding great innovations from outside the academic environment and we would encourage entrepreneurs to have the courage to apply and see their ideas come to fruition.”

On the launch evening, you will hear from successful entrepreneurs who have participated in the programme and are now running their successful start-ups.
