Education

Connecting business with education to train a future ready workforce. Providing career exploration and authentic project based learning experiences is the focus. The foundation is value creation for both the business partner and the student. Students experience real time learning and participate in their educational and skill development. Business partners gain value through getting projects completed that add value to the organization and exposure to future employees. The unique business and educational model is foundational to economic development in any community.

Business Management

Thinking of starting a new business? Need a new strategic plan to address rapidly changing market demands? Exploring purchasing a new technology? Investing in a new business or buying an existing company? Business development and growth opportunities can be complex and a bit overwhelming. Using a third party to support the analysis and provide strategic recommendations can reduce the risk and provide objectivity when making decisions. Amson Technology provides a customized expert process for your specific business development goals and needs.

Environment 

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”  – Albert Einstein

Conservation and climate change are focus areas. Strategic planning and the identification of strategic partnerships are central to the consulting efforts to determine goals and prioritize efforts. Policy and program development are major components of the strategies developed to accomplish conservation goals and mitigate climate change effects. Education and awareness programs are then developed to launch and support identified initiatives.
