“The use of mobile/wireless technologies are fast becoming a critical element in the growth and productivity of companies in every industry. Often we find that there are entrepreneurs with exciting ideas of ways they can use these technologies to facilitate the growth of their firm, or to serve their customers more effectively, but they don’t know where to access the mobile technology expertise they need to make it happen, or how to get what they need from mobile technology experts when they find them. Our goal with this bootcamp is to make using mobile technologies a much easier process for entrepreneurs. If we can help them take advantage of the technologies, they can help our state’s economy grow that much faster!”, states MTAM CEO/Executive Director, Linda Daichendt.
