Great to see www.Verifly.com (a client of MaynoothWorks) reach the top 100 in the Sunday Business Post startup list. Maynooth University has been engaging with Verifly from the start to help them deliver their technical solution.
“Verifly is an international drone technology company, managed by seasoned technology entrepreneurs, with offices in Ireland, the US and China. Central to Verilfy’s decision to setup its Geospatial R&D operation in Ireland was the need for expertise to help identify high-quality geospatial data-sets and develop spatial algorithms that enable basic aeronautical & urban descriptors to be transformed into useful information services for drone operation. Maynooth University has played a key role in providing the expertise to train Verifly’s engineering team to build these databases as well as the various geospatial systems that deliver these information services. Maynooth University’s Commercialisation Office understands the needs of the tech Industry and has played a pivotal role in helping Verilfy compete in a rapidly changing global drone technology market.” Colm Ó Cuilleanáin, Verifly
Verifly are a great example as how Maynooth University engages with startups as recently explained to over 100 delegates at our recent Connect 2106 Event in Carton house.
Delighted also to see www.CogniKids.com (1st place Maynooth University Student Entrepreneur Competition 2012 & client of the MU/AIT NewFrontiers Program) making the list.
If you would like to follow in their foot steps we are looking for the next breed of entrepreneurs for the upcoming New Frontiers Program which will be kicking off in June 2016. The New Frontiers Program provides expert advice, financial support and accommodation in top class incubators.
