Efforts to Close the Digital Divide Prompts Company Move To Hartford

GreenShare Technology is a company that takes its mission – to bridge the digital divide by providing technology to those who cannot afford it – quite seriously.  That is plainly evident in their move from Farmington to new, larger headquarters at 1200 Park Street in Hartford. The new, 2,000 square foot location doubles the company’s space, allowing GreenShare Technology to bring more affordable computers and computer maintenance services to Hartford and surrounding areas. The company plans to provide basic computer training and computer recycling services on-site. The new location wilogo-greenshare-technologyll also contain a retail section where customers can try out computers before purchasing them.

“We’re excited to become a part of the Hartford community,” said Brenda Steigman, Executive Director of GreenShare Technology. “It is our goal to become a one-stop source for low-cost computer technology and repair. We hope this new location will make us more accessible to the people who can benefit from our services.”

GreenShare Technology will host an open house at its new location Thursday, March 28 from 5 to 7 p.m. The public is welcome to stop by to learn more about the company’s services and bring an unwanted computer to be re-purposed or recycled.

A 501(c) (3) charitable organization and Microsoft® registered refurbisher, Greenshare Technology offers computer recycling services for businesses and families to discard unwanted technology, keeping working computers out of landfills and putting them into the hands of small businesses, schools, non-profit organizations, government programs, and other eligible customers who might otherwise not have access to this technology.

GreenShare Technology received the 2011 Social Entrepreneur Award and the 2010 Hartford Young Professionals & Entrepreneurs (HYPE) Award.  The company is a reSET incubator program.
