Ryan O'Hara

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
I am a member of the Dearborn Chamber of Commerce and the Dearborn Chamber Connect program.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
Our Lady of the Woods Church. My Aunt worked there and referred me because I am experiences with both Macs and PCs.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
I have not utilized any capital investments. I started my business on the side and put everything I made back into it. This allowed me to build up my company and put together all of the tools I would need to operate.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
There are a lot of small businesses in Metro Detroit. My company specializes in providing small businesses with the type of support that large corporations with built in IT departments are accustomed to. From a more personally perspective, I find that there is a lot to gain from the conversations I have with other small business owners in the area. I always walk away from those conversations with a wealth of new ideas. There are a lot of smart, hard working people in Metro Detroit.

If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
Downtown. Over the past few years, downtown has improved leaps and bounds but I would love to see it reach a point where more people frequent the area and businesses thrive. It's on the right path and I'm looking forward to the future.
