About the business:
While putting together an IT department at a media start-up company, Larry Velez saw a huge gap in the quality and availability of IT services for small businesses. Velez founded Sinu with the belief that small businesses should have access to affordable, enterprise-level IT services and that he was the person to deliver it.
When companies with fewer than 500 employees are growing, trying to save costs or struggling to replace a senior IT person that has left the company, Sinu tends to win a large amount of their business. Becoming their client's new IT department, Sinu takes over all IT functions by managing communications, data sharing, and security.
