In four short years, Web Summit has become Europe’s largest tech conference attracting over 20,000 attendees from around the world.
Rise is a new tech conference that will give these leaders of enterprise a place to congregate and demonstrate how their companies are changing the way we live.
Set up last April, TreyBro is a free mobile application designed to discover and connect with gamers based on what they are playing and their skill level across all the top gaming platforms such as PC, Xbox live, Sony PSN and Steam.
The idea for TreyBro came about while the twins were working as consultants for PwC in Dublin, where they were thought how to challenge existing problems with creative solutions.
Said Daniel: “We felt that match-making in online gaming today was very ineffective at matching like-minded players. The reality is that matchmaking systems are designed to quickly fill a gaming server with entirely random players. There is no focus on the end-user experience. The result is either total defeat or an unsatisfying victory. The relationships between the gamers are non-existent.”
To solve this problem Michael added: “We created TreyBro, which allows a gamer to set up a profile that lists the top three games they are playing and their skill level. TreyBro then presents other gamers that have a similar interest and invites the gamer to either connect to or ignore the gamer. Once this is done, the two gamers are connected across all the top gaming platforms. The TreyBro platform gives all the information necessary to start a game with the tap of a finger”.
TreyBro are currently based in South East BIC, which is a public private partnership, they support the generation and development of new innovative enterprises and assists existing SMEs to innovate and expand.
The Treyvaud twins will get global exposure at both the RISE Conference and GamesCom in Cologne, Germany; they are hoping to continue to place Waterford firmly on the map as a centre for technical excellence and innovation (www.treybro.com)
