A Passion to Unlock Knowledge That Drives Performance

about-page-hero

In 2008, we started out with students, finding the most passionate person on a subject, interviewing them, and turning those insights into content. We knew we were on to something.

Our Story

Built to Set Knowledge Free

Fuse is built on a simple idea: Solving the problem of capturing and digitizing the tacit knowledge of experts in your organization and making that knowledge universally accessible.

We Started With Students

We started with FuseSchool, a charitable foundation started by Steve Dineen that empowers millions of learners around the globe by giving them access to a world-class education for FREE — anytime, anywhere. It currently has more than 10 million learners with a goal of 100 million by 2023. 

As exciting as this has been, we knew there was an even larger area of need.

We Expanded to the Enterprise

What Steve learned from FuseSchool was how to take a passion for bite-size learning and apply it to some of the biggest enterprises in the world. When he looked at the need to access learning and knowledge at work, Steve understood that there was an opportunity and need to create learning content that captured the tacit knowledge of subject-matter experts and top performers, then distributed that knowledge throughout the organization. 

So our journey began...

Advanced to AI and Creating Fuse Flow

Now we’ve advanced to AI — where we take the tacit and explicit knowledge in an organization and bring it all together into one corporate brain creating Fuse Flow, which can predict the knowledge you need in the moment. It gives you the same type of access at work as what Google gives you in your private life.

As exciting as the journey has been so far, we are only getting started. We hope you will join us for the ride.
