Part 1: Scaling With the Help of Our Local University Students
Updated: Sep 20, 2022
As MSP Disposal's customer base grew from 5 to 1,000 within a year, we quickly knew we needed a unique hiring system for scalability. As soon as our platform was rolled out, we built a training program that could grow with the demand.
We forged relationships with local Universities and their College of Computing students to help test our clients hardware weekly alongside, Keith our trainer. With Keith's help we set up a syllabus plan to help map the students into prepping for Comp Tia A+ course and knowledge before we covering the testing costs.
We discovered that by working with local universities and their students, not only do the students have the chance to gain hands-on tech experience (they wouldn't have otherwise gotten) but they are also helping our business recycle more electronic waste at a faster speed for our clients.
With assistance from our students, we are better positioned than ever before to continue scaling our business and helping MSPs across the country manage their waste disposal needs.
"MSP Disposal has been a valuable resource for placement of technology internships that impact the learning experiences and outcomes of students who attend the University of South Carolina."

"MSP Disposal is innovative in both their concept and their approach to talent development in the tech space. They have already demonstrated a commitment to building the tech talent pool in Columbia by hiring fresh graduates from our Computer Technician program and training them on the job to help them grow their skill set.
In my role as the Lead Business Solutions Director at Midlands Technical College I get to meet a lot of people in the local business community. I am fortunate to have a very unique opportunity to get to know how these businesses operate and what makes them grow. In my 17 years of doing workforce development in this area, I have not met any other entrepreneur who impressed me the way Brooks Boland at Minos Tech has. His company is innovative in both their concept and their approach to talent development.
Brooks is a brilliant guy. But there are lots of brilliant people in the tech space in this town. What Brooks brings to the table that will make a difference for our community is his willingness to help people join him in that tech space. He has already demonstrated a commitment to building the tech talent pool in Columbia by hiring fresh graduates from our Computer Technician program and training them on the job to help them grow their skill set. He is also helping them grow their careers. And subsequently, he is becoming a big part of the solution to building a sustainable population of tech talent that will keep this industry thriving in the Midlands.
Any investment made in Brooks and Minos will be wisely made in my opinion. I am excited to see his vision continue to grow and I am excited for what that will mean for our future students and for our local economy."
