Â InformAmuse S.r.l. was founded in 2009 Â as a SME Â and established as academic spin-off of the University of Palermo. The leading mission of this young company is to "inform by amusing", but it is actually evolving in something more ambitious: the realization of innovative converging projects involving people, their culture and the use of technology within their knowledge. InformAmuse has produced several apps for iOS and Android, and an innovative multichannel information system, QRouteMeÂ®, to deliver rich user-experiences in large events or exhibits, already deployed in eight large international thematic exhibitions.
Informamuse Â is involved in three different projects respectively named BookAlive, SmartHeritage and Digitema funded within the Miur (Ministero dellâ€™Istruzione, dellâ€™UniversitÃ e della Ricerca) in the Digital Cultural Heritage track. The main pupose is to produce products and solutions able to promote Cultural Heritage in different aspects of everyday life.
InformAmuse employs five brilliant computer engineers, all in their thirties, three of them holding a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering. R&D results find place not only in products and IT solutions but also in several scientific publications. Economic results for fiscal years 2010 and 2011 have largely exceeded the initial business plan estimates.
The track record of InformAmuse includes: First Prize at the StartCup Business Idea competition in Palermo, 2009; 2011 Italian Innovator Company Certificate by the Agenzia per la diffusione delle tecnologie per l'innovazione of the Presidency of the Italian Ministry Council; SMILIES (Small Mediterranean Insular Light Indutries Enhancement and Support) Excellence Award, as part of the MED Program 1G-MED08-454.
