Frontenac CFDC’s  Tech Coach project is all about moving small businesses in Frontenac and L&A counties to the next level by leveraging technology. Through workshops, one-on-one coaching, and online training, we help businesses get more out of social media, connect to new mobile technologies, and leverage online tools to allow them to work from anywhere.  In the past 7 months, we have helped businesses start online stores, setup and see success from online advertising, and get better acquainted with mobile payment systems. We have helped implement new payment systems that save processing dollars, speed up payments, and result in less hassle. We have also seen more businesses working to promote themselves through social media and online advertising, which has increased their sales and general outreach to the community.  Over the next year, we will be working further to help businesses leverage online tools to allow them to work from anywhere, to expand their customer base and sales, and ensure they are meeting the changing demands of the online community. This work will include developing more workshops, working one-on-one with business owners, and expanding our online presence to make it easy for any owner in the county to complete training when they are able.

If you are interested in learning more about our workshop offerings visit  If you have questions about technology and your business, or need help with websites and social media, we would be happy to talk further with you.  Please contact Tracey Parker or Anne Prichard at the Frontenac CFDC to set-up your free one-one-one consultation with our Tech Coach, Max Sadlowski.   Support for this project is through the Frontenac CFDC, PELA CFDC and the County of Lennox and Addington.
