Our Definition of Technology

Technology today is found everywhere and we don’t restrict its definition to just “technology”. It’s found in apps, alarm clocks, dish washers, and so on. It’s found in new rubber for autonomous vehicles, improved cameras on drones -and even in a unique business model for a restaurant. 

Early-stage startups

We focus on providing opportunity and growth for early-stage startups. We believe impact early-on and a solid business case foundation is the only place to start. Whether you are still in the idea phase or selling some product, we can help define, mood, and pivot your startup into success.

Our Definition of Technology

Technology today is found everywhere and we don’t restrict its definition to just “technology”.    It’s found in apps, alarm clocks, your dish washer, and that blockchain platform you’re thinking about. It’s found in new rubber for autonomous vehicles, improved cameras on drones -and even in a unique business model for a restaurant. Essentially, if you are building something it has technology in it -so don’t be shy.

Hands-On Workshops Focused on Action

We believe strongly in teaching and hands-on guiding -so we do both. We bring in partners, ambassadors, and speakers to lay the foundational concepts -then we bring in facilitators to work directly with your business case. This gives you the full package : what to think about and what to do.
