Technology Associates Inc.(remembered)
The EternaLight assets of Technology Associates, Inc.
have been transfered to EternaLights, LLC. All orders and services issues will be handled by them.

In 1992, Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson founded Technology Associates. In 1994, their partnership incorporated under the name of Technology Associates, Inc. Between 1993 and 2000, Technology Associates successfully operated a small chain of computer stores in the Reno/Sparks area which sold and serviced computers.
Technology Associates was also one of the founding investors in Great Basin Internet Services (GBIS), Northern Nevada's Largest Independent internet service provider. In 1998, TA divested itself of GBIS. In 2000, TA divested itself of it's retail stores to pursue manufacturing of the EternaLight flashlight and other related and unrelated products developed by Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson. In 2007, the organization formerly known as Technology Associates, Inc., founded by Thomas Hoops and Derone Bryson in 1992 ceased to exist.

This site is still a functioning sales platform for the EternaLight products manufactured and sold by EternaLights, LLC. However, the remainder of the site remains as it was in it's finality before the closing of Technology Associates, Inc.

Today Mr. Bryson is privately employed as a Software Engineer. Mr. Hoops is privately employed in a manufacturing company as it's CTO. After working together since 1990, through their various projects and partnerships, Mr. Hoops and Mr. Bryson are still best friends and continue to explore new opportunities together.

  • Growth & Debt Consolidation Capital: Looking for an alternative to the stock market? The problem with big public companies is that no one is accountable DIRECTLY to the share holder. Their reports and announcements are crafted more by their marketing departments than by accounting or operations departments. Think about this: If you own stock in large fortune 1000 company, can you call the president and ask him what his plans are, where your money is and what it's doing? Will he even know who you are? That's why even large companies can be scary investments these days. In fact, the management of most public companies have an environment with incentives which compel them to make make decisions which are not good for the long term stability of the company. We believe that the stock market has become just another casino. Thus, investment in small private businesses is a safer and better way to get a return on your investment. As an investor in small businesses, you have more control over your investment and you have management who are accountable to you.

    We may or may not have an investment opportunity for you when you read this. But, please look for opportunities to invest in small businesses. Small businesses are the back bone of America and represent the best investment opportunities if you take the time to do your homework.

    Technology Associates occasionally offers long term investment with predictable ROI or exit strategy. Usually these funds are to expand inventories, accelerate new product development and consolidate existing debt. Please call if you are interested.
