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
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.
