Trans Tech Enterprises Surges to New Heights

Without access to funds for college, Angelica Ross was able to teach herself everything she knows on which they preach the unlimited potential for growth in what we offer, how we offer it, and who we offer it to.  Our trainings are delivered on-site or online.
today that has served her well in building a career transitioning from an independent contractor into the current Executive Director of TransTech Social Enterprises. A young emerging company seeking to empower, educate and employ transgender individuals. The company has a snazzy web site at

 Angelica began with the tools of basic data entry and desktop publishing then expanded them into web design and development, branding strategies, sales & marketing and more. Having the ability to telecommute gave Angelica the independence she needed to transition, and discover her true value beyond her body. With her business partner, Joey Grant, these two dynamic business folk are seeking to take it to the next level as quickly as the can raise capital to support their efforts.

COP 24/7 is always energized by big ass ideas such as this with dedicated and determined individuals destined to make it happen. We so encourage this type of "out of the box" type approaches yet as they too are learning it the access to sufficient and long standing capital to sustain such ideas that is required. There is so much that we can do for ourselves if there was a qualified funding stream to support all types of these ventures.

 I will certainly keep my eye on this team of digital front runners with hopes that some how, some day much of this same energy can come to my hometown too! Watch their video and feel their passion and enthusiasm to move their trans community forward!
