Dan Malone and Vadim Clyne-Kelly are moving into their 4th year in Computer Applications but are already active in business before they graduate. Both of these CA students along with three other DCU Engineering students Josef Kunik, Richard Parker and Ken Bourke are working hard in business. They are flying under the name of 'Agile Payments', and are one of around 8 companies currently involved in the DCU run UStart accelerator, who have given them some start up capital and office space. They are also involved in an Intel & Berkley sponsored accelerator, concluding with a pitch in Silicon Valley to venture capitalists. Although Dan and Vadim are still in college, Dan is currently holding down the CTO role, while Vadim is the CIO (Innovation Officer).
