A small team with big ideas

InnoSoft was founded in 2006 and the first version of Fusion was released in September 2008. The company was started by Brian Foster and Jeff Berg, two tech entrepreneurs with a shared love of competitive sports and software development. From a basement in Waterloo, Ontario, InnoSoft expanded to become the market leader in campus recreation software. Now a team of 37, with offices in Waterloo and London, InnoSoft continues to grow faster than ever, through continued innovation and product development.
