Our Team

Posted on

Reality Technology, Inc. epitomizes the statement that powerful things come in small packages.  Founded in 2002 by a father and son team on the premise that technology should be used for something more than just eliminating people jobs and providing entertainment, Reality Technology provides  technology that empowers. This remains the core value in all that we do.

Empowerment starts small and grows.  Empowerment begets Innovation.  Practically all major innovations which have improved our way of living started not from large conglomerates, but from a small business owner with an idea to make things better.   Today’s problems can be solved by the empowerment of people.  That is why we focus on small business and organizations such as federal, state, local government agencies, nonprofits, and corporations with a strong commitment to diversity who genuinely care about helping people grow.
