BUSINESS DESCRIPTION

Future Access is Niagara’s leading web development and digital marketing agency. For the past 20 years, we’ve proudly provided individuals, non-profit organizations, and businesses alike with exceptional services in anything and everything related to their online presence. Future Access’ main focus is always partnership. We aim to be positive contributors to both our clients and our community.

MILESTONES/SUCCESSES TO DATE

Future Access hosted its Niagara Goes Mobile and Hamilton Goes Mobile events in 2013, each of which drew in over 150 business representatives to learn about mobile-friendly web design and trends in online mobile usage. Both events were a wonderful opportunity to connect with organizations in the area and share some of our knowledge.

2015 marked a time of substantial growth at Future Access. With a rapidly growing client base, we began bringing in new hires and expanding our services. Recently, Future Access moved to its larger, new offices to facilitate its growing staff and expanding services, with a grand opening set for February 2016. It’s a great way to celebrate our first 20 years of business!

HOW HAS INNOVATE NIAGARA HELPED YOU?

Innovate Niagara has played a crucial role in Future Access’ success. Since joining with Innovate Niagara, they have connected us with valuable resources, facilitated networking, and sent us referrals, all of which have helped us grow as a business. We participated in the IRAP SME project through Innovate Niagara, which helped us with market research and financial projections that were key in making the decision to move to a larger facility. We have also had the opportunity to refer several of our clients to Innovate Niagara, so that they can take advantage of the great support and resources that we have. Both Future Access and Innovate Niagara are quick to sponsor, host, or participate in one another’s events (such as Contacts to Contracts, Ignite Niagara, and Show Me the Money) as well. This collaboration has allowed us to build a great working relationship.

BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR MEANS…

Never being satisfied with the status quo. You continually take risks and try new things. Throughout it all, you give back to your community and reap the benefits of that partnership whenever possible.
