Accelerator Centre Client DossierView Closes $750K Financing Round

WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 22, 2009) - The Accelerator Centre (AC), an award-winning and world-renowned centre for the cultivation of technology entrepreneurship, announced today that its client DossierView has closed a $750,000 financing round with First Leaside Visions II Limited Partnership. The announcement follows on the heels of a funding round with Golden Triangle Angelnet announced by the company on December 15, 2009.

DossierView leverages technology developed by Dr. Andrew Wong, a founder of the PAMI (Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence) Lab at the University of Waterloo, to create the next generation of PAMI technologies. DossierView's intelligent search technology promises to offer corporate and consumer users faster access to the most relevant information located on a desktop or on the Web.

"We're incredibly excited about this financing round, which allows DossierView to further expand our development efforts. Our intelligent pattern analysis forms the foundation for Internet and Enterprise search technologies that make searching for information predictive and social. This is an important day for DossierView, and sends a positive message to technology entrepreneurs, who are actively seeking to commercialize and bring new technology offerings to the market," says Stephen Bacso, CEO, DossierView.

"As the economy rebounds, the Accelerator Centre is becoming an important hub of increased investment activity, with a significant number of start-ups within the AC either closing, or actively negotiating financing rounds. This latest round of investment into our AC client community is a huge win for DossierView, for the Waterloo Region economy and for our growing start-up community," says Tom Corr, CEO of the Accelerator Centre.
