Technology Start-ups

Empowering Innovative Thinkers and Entrepreneurs with Tools to Grow

As an entrepreneur with an early stage technology company, you are inspired to innovate because you know your unique vision can create change. As a founder or leader, you are responsible for much of the heavy lifting as you work to grow your technology business. Navigating the many important decisions you need to make for your business – such as entity selection, protecting your intellectual property, taking advantage of credits and incentives, and presenting a solid financial position to attract the next level of investors for your business – can be complicated, but you don’t have to navigate these waters alone.

Bennett Thrasher works with technology companies from early to mature stages in the business lifecycle. With our depth of experience, we are uniquely qualified to consult with start-ups, because we understand and can help you address the unique challenges you face as your start-up continues to grow.

Our team also offers technology services for companies looking for IT assistance and consulting.
