At TVWGroup we want you to understand how important it is to support small businesses here in the United States. We take pride in providing quality jobs for American families and without your support that would not be possible. As you may have also seen on our "About Us" page we want to give back to the youth in America by providing training and intern opportunities. Sooner or later, one way or another, our company will touch the lives of someone you know or someone in your family, feel good knowing that you were able to help by supporting TVW Group.

It is documented that the small businesses are key to economic growth (See my links)

When it is all said and done, we just ask that upon the release our production web site and remote access solution, that you give us at least 12 months of support. Just as we supported the mega companies of today, we one day could be a significant force in the market place and more importantly as a employer of high quality talent. Just think about how long it took for Microsoft to get it right (From Win Ver 3.1 to 3.11 to Win 95, Win98, WinMe Win NT, Win2000 and now Win XP) it has been about 13 years. If you support us for several incarnations of our solution, I am sure that we will play an important role in your life and in the lives of those around you.
