The phrase “technology gap” has been buzzing around in IT circles for quite some time. But what does it actually mean? And, as you consider investing in a computer training business, it is crucial that you understand how New Horizons franchise owners make a meaningful difference in closing the technology gap every single day.
As you build and grow your New Horizons business, it will be vital to reach out to your community; this is where you will find clients, referrals and support. You can form connections by leveraging the contacts you already have, utilizing New Horizons’ proven marketing strategies, networking and being visible to potential clients.
As you explore starting your own IT training business, it is important to consider all of your options. You can build a computer training franchise with all of the support of New Horizons or attempt to launch an independent computer training business. Here, we highlight some of the reasons New Horizons’ model and partnerships make us an attractive investment opportunity, especially when compared to starting an IT training business independently.

Freedom to Focus on Business Operations

Our franchise owners are effective leaders, dynamic salespeople and overall go-getters. They don’t have to spend too much of their time scheduling, cancelling, and rescheduling courses. They spend it motivating their teams, being involved in their local business community, strategizing and growing their businesses. Our Guaranteed-to-Run schedule makes it all possible. While New Horizons franchise owners are focusing on business operations, students are still receiving the world’s best IT training from the comfort of their own homes or offices.
