“Stay safe, stay focused, stay ready. We will come out of this together, and we will come out of this stronger.”

– Vaughn Thurman, techfrederick Board member CEO & Founder, HighGear


As we navigate these unprecedented times of “social distancing”, remote business and economic impact, we believe strongly in the power of community and shared responsibility. Here’s how some of our techfrederick business leaders are successfully managing the waters…

“At Henry Martin Law, in addition to offering virtual meetings to our clients to comply with social distancing efforts, we also see ourselves as partners in our clients’ businesses. We want to do whatever we can to support those businesses during this difficult time. We are looking for additional ways to help our winery, brewery, and distillery clients as well as our food and entertainment service clients during this very stressful time as well.”- Henry Abromson, Henry Martin Law

“Orases has moved to 100% virtual working. We are sending daily emails to team – over communicate! We are holding weekly “all hands” video meet ups. Most importantly, we keep to our values and NEVER market or sell to the fear.” – Nick Damoulakis, CEO Orases

“We have the technology to remote work with minimal business interruption. Given that, it makes prudent sense to do all we can to minimize the risk to the wider community, especially those who are vulnerable,” – Karl Hindle, CEO Wellspring Digital
