Enterprise Ireland invest in Fluid SoftwareJun 29, 2011
Fluid Software have some very exciting news! We are truly delighted to announce that we have just received €50,000 Euro investment for a 10pc ordinary equity stake along with support of a business mentor under Enterprise Ireland’s Competitive Start Fund in the Internet and games category. Fluid Software are honoured to join a select group of companies awarded the investment to date. From a large pool of entrants we joined 25 short-listed companies, then presented in front of a panel of leading industry experts, including Barry O'Neil of Other Ventures and Colm Lyon of Realex Payments in order to reach the final group and ultimately secure the investment - a real vote of confidence.
Fluid Software are already putting this investment to good use by dramatically increasing the pace of development of Fluid UI - our upcoming mobile prototyping tool. We plan to purchase additional mobile equipment for testing, upgrade our server-side capabilities and offer a range of contract development positions to Irish and International developers, graduates and students. In addition, we are presently taking on interns. If you are interested - please contact us right away. Fluid UI is being built from the ground up using the latest HTML5 technology. Fluid UI is a cloud based service and allows users of varying technical competencies to quickly create click-through prototypes of iPhone and Android applications. Prototypes can be instantly previewed on a smartphone such as the Apple iPhone or other devices running the Google Android Mobile operating system. If you are interested - sign up here for early access to Fluid UI.
The purpose of the Competitive Start Fund is to accelerate the growth of start-up companies that have the capability to succeed in global markets.
