New companies often grow by adding a collection of personal computers and special-purpose technology piecewise with no particular plan while the founders must focus on getting initial products or services developed, finding the markets for them, and obtaining financing.  We provide Information Technology management services that help in these scenarios, including:

  • Evaluating what’s in place.
  • Determining immediate and near-future needs.
