Happy Incubator Graduation to Technology Solutions!

Technology Solutions under the direction of CEO Carlos Gonzales moves from the Incubator into a commercial location in Santa Fe this month and expands their market to Arizona. We’re so proud for them. Incubation works when companies launch into a new phase of growth.

The Technology Solutions timeline is dotted with success despite opening in the depth of the financial crisis. The company entered the Incubator in October 2011 and has since grown, creating new jobs and increasing revenue by 300%.

“When Thornburg mortgage closed, I decided to start my own company. The Incubator gave me valuable support with a strong, like-minded community. We benefited from staff resources and the opportunity to network with others entrepreneurs. We gained one of our best customers from networking in the halls of SFBI!” Carlos said.

Congratulations Carlos and team Technology Solutions!
