Our Mission

Our Mission

At Fusen, we're lighting the fuse on student founded companies through our platform - bringing together (n) ideas and founders.

The Fusen platform fosters community amongst student founders leveraging open accelerator models that provide access to the resources needed to successfully launch and grow their companies.

The benefits of the Fusen platform expands beyond the community of student founders and traditional resources to connect our student founders to industry and skillset-based mentors, investors, and funding opportunities.

Our Story

Founded in 2022 by Christopher W Klaus, Fusen was launched to empower student founders across the world to successfully launch and grow their startups. After starting his first company in his dorm room at Georgia Tech in the early 1990s (and successfully exiting in 2006), Christopher has been passionate about increasing the awareness, resources, and opportunities for college students to pursue starting their own company while in school.

This passion led to the creation of the CREATE-X program at Georgia Tech, as well as two additional accelerators - NeuroLaunch and CyberLaunch. His support of student founded companies goes well beyond accelerators and mentorship.

Through the Fusen Fund, Christopher and his team have invested, as the first investor, in more than 100+ companies over the past decade.

After a decade of witnessing the success of student founded companies, Christopher is ready to launch his efforts on a global scale - providing students from all over the world with the community, support, and resources needed to successfully launch their own startups.
