“Crazy idea” leads Florida Poly students to take on the technology services market

Jared Nurse, Orel Yoshia, Djuan Gayle, Jaimie Davis, Logan Carlson, and Nicolee Brown are part of Madd Technologies LLC, a technology start-up run by students at Florida Polytechnic University.

“We learn by doing and one of the hallmarks of studying at Florida Poly is being able to get your hands on stuff,” Davis said. “But being in this company since my freshman year has really given me a lot more than I could ever expect from a college education.”

LAKELAND, Fla. (PRWEB) January 16, 2020
A group of Florida Polytechnic University students has found work with a great company that offers hands-on experience, flexible hours, fun co-workers, and the kind of boss most people only dream of – themselves.
Madd Technologies LLC, which stemmed from an idea friends had late one night, is a technology start-up helmed by Florida Poly students and focused on the consumer electronics and computer software markets. It provides services such as product design, website design, computer-aided design, app development, and more.
“We had this crazy idea to start a company,” said CEO Djuan Gayle, a senior majoring in computer engineering. “We’re going to a technology school and we want to change the world, so why not be able to put all of that under a company and just make it happen.”
That crazy idea and the company’s willingness to take on unusual projects are reflected in its name.
Recent Madd Technologies projects have included the design of a university app, and the design of a smart refractometer to measure grapes for peak ripeness for a client in the wine industry.
In addition to providing technology services for local businesses, Madd Technologies is working on developing its own products, such as an algorithm that uses artificial intelligence to recommend clothing to customers.
“When you’re an engineer, everyone in the industry is looking for experience and as a student it can be difficult to gain that experience,” said Jaimie Davis, a junior electrical engineering major and the company’s technology officer. “Being a part of this company and working on project management skills and overall communication really helps all of us become better engineers.”
The eight-person company formed in 2018 and found guidance from Justin Heacock, Florida Poly’s entrepreneurship coordinator.
“It’s been a learning curve because it’s not like we’re going to business school, and Justin has been really good at helping with that,” Gayle said. “We go to him and he just finds the time.”
Gayle said the company is hoping to soon grow to about 15 team members and move into an office space in Lakeland and hopes to eventually be located near the University, providing both jobs and internships to other Florida Poly students.
“For the whole four years of college, we’ve been entrepreneurial-minded,” said Logan Carlson, a senior majoring in computer engineering and the company’s research and development officer.
Madd Technologies’ leadership said they hope other students will see their success and be motivated to follow their own “crazy ideas.”
“We learn by doing and one of the hallmarks of studying at Florida Poly is being able to get your hands on stuff,” Davis said. “But being in this company since my freshman year has really given me a lot more than I could ever expect from a college education.”
Students who would like to join Madd Technologies and businesses interested in the company’s services can email maddtechnologies1@outlook.com.

Lake Mary, Florida Financial Advisor is Recognized by Lenz Entertainment Group

I am very honored to have been presented this award. Lenz Entertainment Group has been instrumental in helping grow The Hidden Wealth Solution. Jerry Lenz, the owner and founder of Lenz Entertainment Group, is an extremely talented individual with over twenty years of experience.

LAKE MARY, Fla. (PRWEB) January 16, 2020

Each week Oliver can be heard on NewsRadio 93.1FM/540AM WFLA in Orlando on Saturdays at 11AM EST and Sundays at 1pm EST, in Tampa on News radio 970AM WFLA on Sundays at 11am EST, in Jacksonville on Sundays at 11am EST on 104.5FM WOKV, in Phoenix on Sundays at 11am MST on Newstalk 550 KFYI and in Dayton on Sundays at 9am EST on Newstalk Radio WHIO 95.7FM/AM1290.
To hear the weekly archived “Hidden Wealth Radio” shows visit online at: https://thehiddenwealthsolution.com/hidden-wealth-radio/. Each week Oliver’s radio show is archived on his website. Followers and those interested in learning more can listen to Oliver as he discusses various topics including “How to avoid making your IRA a IOU to the IRS”, “How to Thrive in Retirement”, “Avoid the Tidal Wave of Higher Taxes”, “How Optimize Retirement Income”, “How Reduce Portfolio Risk in while Increasing Returns “Retirees Largest Unexpected Expense”, “Biggest Retirement Mistakes People Repeatedly Make”, “Retirement Tax Mistakes You Can’t Afford” and much more.
Oliver stated, “I am very honored to have been presented this award. Lenz Entertainment Group has been instrumental in helping grow The Hidden Wealth Solution. Jerry Lenz, the owner and founder of Lenz Entertainment Group, is an extremely talented individual with over twenty years of experience in the broadcast industry where he has consulted with business owners in growing their brand and customer reach. Jerry’s experience, insights and creativity has helped my company over the years to differentiate and better communicate to address the needs of Baby Boomers and Retirees, so they thrive in retirement.”
Jerry Lenz, Storyteller and Founder of Lenz Entertainment Group, commented, “Chuck Oliver is a gifted communicator and truly understands the power of radio. Hidden Wealth Radio combines elements of education, information, entertainment and, most importantly, a strong direct response call to action.”
For two decades, Lenz Entertainment Group has helped business owners learn how to host and execute their own radio program in a variety of industries such as, home improvement, legal advice, medical advice, automotive, computer and digital advice and more.
The Hidden Wealth Solution is located at 250 International Parkway, Suite 146, Lake Mary, Florida 32746. Their team of financial advisors specialize in working with Baby Boomers and Retirees to help them save on their retirement taxes and navigate the change in tax laws so they can keep more of their wealth and ensure their financial safety, liquidity and growth are secured.
Oliver added, “Retirement planning can be confusing, frustrating and difficult. When you work for so many years, you are accustomed to having a steady income that typically allows you to live comfortably. It can be challenging to financially plan for retirement so you can continue to live your current lifestyle. Many people plan for retirement once they retire, this is quite opposite of what we recommend. It takes prior planning to successfully manage one’s investments to take full advantage of tax savings year after year that will accumulate to greater income and savings. With the changes in tax laws for 2020 and the uncertainty of this year’s presidential election, it is essential to understand how these changes can affect one’s overall retirement portfolio and plan. Tax planning can be stressful and cumbersome to understand the Government “Gotcha’s” and loopholes. My staff and I work diligently to educate our clients so they understand changes in tax, and their best solutions for keeping more of their hard-earned money in 2020.”
Oliver created a short, easy to understand educational resource titled “Retirement and Your Taxes Guide, How to Protect Your IRA from the IRS.” Baby Boomers and Retirees concerned about their best way to get to or better through retirement can request this time sensitive tax savings resource at http://www.TaxesSaved.com
