ACCESS 2015 Signature MBE Sponsorship – Event Connects North Texas Minority-Owned Businesses with Buying Entities

DALLAS – TSP (Technology Service Professionals), a leading provider of information technology services to Fortune 500 companies, served as the signature minority business enterprise (MBE) sponsor of ACCESS 2015, hosted by the Dallas/Fort Worth Minority Supplier Development Council, May 11-12 at the Irving Convention Center in Irving, Texas. TSP is a minority business enterprise and member of the DFW MSDC. Over 1,000 minority-owned businesses in North Texas participated in the largest regional business expo connecting corporations and public sector agencies with certified minority-owned businesses.

“We enjoyed the events and networking at ACCESS 2015, and we were proud to sponsor, along with our friends at Texas Instruments. We made great connections with other minority-owned businesses and buying entities,” said Rick Skaggs, co-founder and president of TSP.

“Texas Instruments signed on as our first customer 13 years ago, three months after we were founded. Texas Instruments’ procurement is friendly toward local and diverse suppliers, which helped get our foot in the door. We now have hundreds of TSP team members onsite at TI, largely due to our ability to listen to the customer and provide tailored solutions. We’re thankful to the DFW MSDC for giving us the opportunity to sponsor this event, and providing a great venue for making real-time connections,” said Frank Gonzalez, co-founder and vice president of TSP.

The two-day expo hosted over 70 confirmed State of Texas agencies recruited by State Senator Royce West. The attending agencies conducted on-the-spot bid opportunities. New to ACCESS 2015 was an Opportunity Board designed to maximize the real-time connections experience, a Business Solutions Pavilion, offering small business solutions and product demonstrations, and a Media Lounge, featuring interactive video interviews.

Rick Skaggs, TSP’s co-founder and president, was interviewed by the DFW MSDC team as part of ACCESS’ Media Lounge.

The two-day expo also featured corporate and MBE roundtables and one-on-one business matchmaking between corporations, public sector entities, and minority business suppliers looking to discuss immediate and near term opportunities.

TSP Serves as Signature Sponsor for North Texas Christian Academy’s Burger Bash & Auction

DALLASTSP (Technology Service Professionals), a leading provider of information technology services to Fortune 500 companies, served as a signature sponsor at the North Texas Christian Academy’s annual Burger Bash & Auction event April 25.

In-N-Out Burger provided the burgers and refreshments, while the Low Pointe Band performed and NTCA hosted the silent auction. Bob Smiley, one of the nation’s most in-demand Christian comedians, entertained attendees with his comedy act. Auction items included paintings and art projects by students, as well as items donated by sponsors, including art, gift cards, and food items.

This year’s auction was one of the most successful for NTCA, who sold 423 tickets and raised nearly $23,000. A portion of the proceeds benefited the In-N-Out Burger Child Abuse Foundation, which has been giving hope to abused and neglected children since 1984.

“It’s important for TSP to have a presence in our community and support causes that matter to us. NTCA is a top-notch school with a mission of providing students for life, rather than just college. We’re proud to help them out with their fundraising efforts,” said Rick Skaggs, co-founder and president, TSP.

“Our Spring Event is our biggest and most important fundraiser of the year. This year’s event was one of the most successful yet. We owe a lot of that to TSP and their sponsorship! We are thankful to partner with a company such as TSP whose generous support goes a long way in helping us achieve our goals for our school,” said Aaron Chowning, head of school, North Texas Christian Academy.

North Texas Christian Academy is committed to preparing students for life and faith through a superior spiritual, scholastic and social experience.
