Velocity Network Launches Office Technology Makeover Program


Office technology and fiber optic Internet service provider Velocity Network is sponsoring a $50,000 office technology makeover program for Erie County businesses and nonprofits.

The program will award two $25,000 makeovers — one to a for-profit business and a second to a nonprofit organization. The makeovers will include office technology products including workstations, security appliances, software, printers and more from Lenovo, Dell Sonicwall, Xerox, Microsoft and Velocity Network.

“For more than 20 years, the Erie community has helped Velocity Network grow to its leadership position for which we are tremendously grateful. Our Office Technology Makeover Program is a way to show how grateful we are ” said Joel Deuterman, CEO of Velocity Network.

Program guidelines and applications will be available only online at An independent panel of judges comprised of Erie community leaders from both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors will select up to 10 finalists and ultimately the two IT makeover winners. Applications can be submitted until one-minute-before-midnight on September 20. The winners will be announced on October 22. The for-profit announcement will take place at the Manufacturer & Business Association and the nonprofit announcement will be made at the Bayfront Convention Center during The Nonprofit Partnership’s annual northwest Pennsylvania Nonprofit Day seminar.

Since 1990, Velocity Network has provided enterprise-level IT solutions to organizations throughout northwest Pennsylvania.
