Best Practices for Business

The concept of a Tech Empowerment Center is birthed from one observation .
Many of our largest tech companies don’t provide in person tech support to minorities in urban areas . Suburban malls are not be convenient locations for many in need of software training or hardware support In fact, the very cost of providing n person support in rent areas is not cost effective for the consumer. This dilemma leaves valuable resources elusive to those most in need.

We propose to bring the tech support and “first log on” experience directly to historically underutilized business and districts (HUB Zones).By acquiring underutilized retail properties such as strip centers or renting vacant space in them, we plan to bring tech support to areas that are not primed for regentrification or revitalization. These locations typically have low or no growth yet have businesses with seasoned professionals who are rooted in the community.

TEC will assist business to get well versed at using technology, automation and processes to make their businesses more competitive.

Business owners will be able to send an employee to one of our TEC rooms and get a customized deep dive
