Identify technology resources

Leverage the latest technology

Connect with our technology expert advisors to identify solutions to solve your business needs. This includes: 

  • Learning about cutting-edge tech products that can be introduced to your business model 
  • Determining your website needs and ideal user experience
  • Gaining confidence in using apps, devices, and other tools to improve your customers’ experience and save you time
  • Support for technology implementation

Elevate Hennepin advisors offer strategic guidance for your business to get to the next step. While they may support some implementation activities, business owners are responsible for ongoing maintenance and day-to-day operations. Businesses should be prepared to engage their own resources for complex projects that are anticipated to take more than 25 hours.

Contact an advisor below to help you identify and plan for your next critical step.
