You're a business owner. You have a vision.

Your vision includes the full potential for what your business can be. Getting there can be difficult, especially when it comes to making decisions about technology.

It can be so hard to decide what to buy. We often crowdsource for answers among friends and colleagues or leave it to a service provider to decide on the right tools. I get it. We've all been there.

You wouldn't use a hammer to swat a fly, right? Finding the right tools to fit the job matters. Especially if you have big business dreams. Business technology decisions can be complicated, and they require a ton of research. I know, not only because I've built my own business, but I've also lead 7-figure technology projects for large organizations.

My specialty is zeroing in on your essential business priorities and building a technology roadmap to support it.

I help you make decisions in a safe, playful environment - free of geek speak. I pride myself on making sure you understand how you'll get where you want to go.

Jen Went Above & Beyond

Amazing! I did the website review with Jen, and she went above and beyond what I expected. Her review and the report were so detailed, yet really easy to understand. Jen walked me through the whole thing and answered all my questions in language I could understand (non-techie). She gave me tons of suggestions and useful pointers on how to "fix" things myself. I loved working with Foster Growth and I'm excited to work with them some more. Great person - Great company!

Foster Growth collaborates with evolving businesses to create and manage technology roadmaps

Whether you are launching or leveling up, a roadmap is your blueprint for moving forward.

Critical for any journey, it clarifies what is needed at what time, so nothing is wasted along the way.

Having this clarity brings a sense of confidence and ownership over how you choose and use your technology. This allows your business’ growth and development to be seamless.

With the roadmap also comes: 

  • Research (apps, software, business process, providers)
  • Recommendations
  • Training
  • Project planning & management
  • Technical specifications
  • Tech agreements
  • Basic data security
  • Tech budgeting and forecasting

Solutions To Address Your Business' Core Needs

It starts with understanding your vision and goals. Together, we distill them into core needs and then prioritize them according to what’s most essential. You receive a list of tools and programs that serve each need.

With 10+ years in the tech world, I enjoy this stuff. Call me crazy, but to dig around and research these things is a tremendous joy. My services extend beyond programs, apps, and platforms—I also help by lining up the right developers, designers, and other providers to make it all happen.

I'll guide you so you know what you truly need and what you don’t. No more feeling like you’re on the hamster wheel, or being run by your technology. We now have a plan—a map—that lays out essential steps over the next few months (or even years), with the best tools and people to get you there.

I’m not beholden to any particular program or service—meaning, you get what’s best for your business and your budget. Nothing more, nothing less.

Technology isn't magic or self-healing. You can't cross your fingers and hope for the best. Foster Growth helps you find and implement the best tools for your business so you can focus on your own badass super powers instead of fretting about tech.

When all those tools and apps are doing their jobs, it's like having an invisible (& automated!) army supporting your business. You hardly know it's there.

Let all those tools and apps work for you—the way it was intended.

I'll help you get there.

Our Online Business Will Be A Huge Success

Jen and Foster Growth did a fantastic job of walking us through starting an online business. She guided us through web design and content and implemented a strategy so we could interface with other platforms to help us achieve our goals. I am so happy with our website and business plan and now feel ready to launch our new business. I know it will be a huge success in large part to Jen and Foster Growth.
