About Us

Our Story

The genesis of FYELABS is in what was previously the Computing Infrastructure Research Centre (CIRC) at McMaster University. Suvojit Ghosh, founder and CEO of FYELABS, was its co-founder and managing director. At CIRC his job was to help companies develop innovative solutions to pressing problems. It allowed him to do many “experiments” on how to add rocket fuel to ambitious startups and small businesses. CIRC used to be an entirely self-funded unit within McMaster University; our customers loved us, and paid to use our services. We are now a proud spin-off of the university, and continue to “hang our hats” at the McMaster Innovation Park as FYELABS Incorporated.

 

Everybody knows that small(er) businesses is where innovation happens. But why do most startups fail? Why are small businesses so fragile? In working with over 100 business founders, Suvojit realized that their biggest struggle is to figure out the “nuts and bolts” of their product. This distracts them from their need of the hour, which is to develop an intimate understanding of their customers’ pain points.

 

The most key lesson in Suvojit’s findings was in speed to market. In order to be successful in today’s business world, you need to go from idea to a minimum viable product in months or weeks if possible! So FYELABS was built to help you do exactly that, using the pioneering innovation-as-a-service (IaaS) model. We simplify and de-risk the act of developing new products and technologies for ambitious small and medium businesses to level the playing field between small companies and the Goliaths of the world.

 

Armed with our carefully curated cross-functional engineering team, and the collective wisdom of having developed over 70 products to date, we act as your one stop shop for all of your product development dreams. Our core team is incredibly diverse, with strengths in software, DevOps, algorithms, IoT, hardware, and more…you name it, we can build it!

 

So far, the IaaS offering has been around for about four  years with 70+ clients from 5 different countries (as of September 2020), and counting…

Our Office

What’s it like at FYELABS HQ?

We are located on the 4th floor of the Atrium building

at 175 Longwood Rd, S in Suite 401A in Hamilton, ON.

Designed for collaborations

between our product development team members and with our customers. Only a few of our team members, out of sheer necessity, have dedicated offices. Otherwise, the whole world is our workplace.

Uniquely equipped to host our clients.

In many cases, our customers come and spend the day with us. We have space to accommodate them in our conference rooms and lab spaces.

Not fancy,

our office reflects our "no-frills" business model. Most of the furniture came from IKEA, and was assembled by us. Our founder's desk was fished out of a basement in the John Hodging's Engineering building
