Wireless Ventures, a provider of wireless headsets as well as transcription devices and speech recognition software for medical professionals, is based in Alamance County.
As owner Mark Podolle was considering ways to expand his company’s reach into Greensboro and the rest of the Piedmont Triad, he came across a copy of Trends, the newspaper for GMA members. The stories and photos in the newspaper piqued his interest. Podolle began asking friends and associates about GMA, and he liked what he heard.
“It seemed like a very engaging organization,” he says. “I decided that if I was going to be part of an organization outside of Alamance County, this would be it.”
Podolle joined GMA around the start of the new year, and he’s been pleased with his decision.
“GMA really focuses on the small business entrepreneur,” he says. “It’s an absolutely wonderful organization.”
Podolle says his GMA membership already has paid for itself through new business that he’s generated through contacts and referrals.
“Membership,” he says, “has been very worthwhile.”
