CozmoTec helps SMEs aim high

Cuty Gupta’s Dublin tech firm Cozmotec makes tech accessible and profitable for businesses.

Cozmotec, a new start-up tech business in Swords, Dublin, led by entrepreneur Cuty Gupta is focused on building custom software solutions for businesses that deliver profitable outcomes.

Gupta (pictured) has identified a gap in the market where SMEs are falling behind in terms of technology and are failing to make use of more efficient options.

“Having worked with multiple businesses from start-up stages to multimillion euro turnover, over time I have recognised a huge knowledge gap in the incredible technology solutions available to them”

“We at CozmoTec are passionate about simplifying business processes to drive profitability and efficiencies, helping organisations to reach their maximum potential faster,” Gupta explained.

“Having worked closely with the SME market over the last number of years in multiple capacities I have identified a market gap, where a huge number of small and medium-sized businesses simply aren’t aware of the software solutions, tech tools, automation processes and applications available to them to help streamline their business.

“In addition to advising companies on existing solutions to implement for their business, at CozmoTec we also offer bespoke solutions for business owners. We tailor our solutions to address their specific challenges which we identify and uncover in our thorough consultation process.”

The problem-solver

“From a young age I have been a passionate problem solver and massively ambitious,” Gupta explained. “I’m proud to say that this has spanned across a number of varied careers to date! I am a fully qualified dentist originally from India who always aspired to be a tech pioneer in this industry.

“After moving to Ireland a number of years ago, unfortunately my dental qualifications did not translate to the Irish system and so I chose to pivot my career moving into the world of accounting, finance and entrepreneurship.

“I joined Icon Accounting gaining experience in multiple roles including Payroll specialist, operations manager, project manager & eventually becoming director of Innovation and Technology.

“Having worked with multiple businesses from start-up stages to multimillion euro turnover, over time I have recognised a huge knowledge gap in the incredible technology solutions available to them,  and for so many their lack of awareness of these amazing tools.  

“Being both a born problem-solver and unashamedly ambitious person I had no choice but to set up Cozmotec to fill this space,” Gupta said.

The right ecosystem

Having lived in Ireland for almost a decade, Gupta believes Ireland has a thriving start-up ecosystem, particularly in the technology sector.

“The country has a supportive government, a skilled workforce, and several world-class universities, which promotes innovation and attracts foreign investment.

“Dublin, in particular, has become a hub for technology start-ups, with several incubators, accelerators, and co-working spaces catering to entrepreneurs. The region’s start-up ecosystem is continually evolving, and the Irish government has launched several initiatives to promote entrepreneurship, including tax breaks and grants, making Ireland an attractive destination for start-ups.”

She said that Cosmotec is not raising funding at present.

To stay organised and focused, the company makes use of readily available cloud technologies. “There are many tools available online that can help us stay agile few of my favourite ones are Trello and Wrike if you are specifically working on small projects, it helps communication within the team at one place and easily accessible.

“Agile development frameworks such as Scrum, Kanban, and Lean are useful for a software development life cycle.”

Steady steps to success

Her biggest lesson so far? “Success takes time and patience.”

Her advice for founders is to focus on culture and prioritisation:

  • Have a clear vision and mission for your company.
  • Surround yourself with a talented and diverse team.
  • Focus on creating a strong company culture.
  • Always be learning and adapting to the changing market.
  • Be willing to take risks, but also be prepared to pivot if needed.
  • Stay organised and prioritise tasks to increase productivity.
  • Build strong relationships with customers, partners, and investors.
  • Continuously measure and analyse your company’s metrics.
  • Seek feedback and learn from both successes and failures.

Fundamentally, she advises: “Stay passionate and committed to your vision and goals, even during challenging times.”
