Assessing Technology, Assisting Businesses

Technology Curiosity – Impacting the Future

The pace of technology evolution seems to be constantly increasing.  Not adapting the new “processes” or the latest “technology” can leave your organization in challenging situations.  Incorrectly adopting these “advances” can damage your organization.  The question is “How to Decide?”

The Trybula Foundation, Inc., is a small company that was formed to assist businesses successfully navigate these technology temptations.  Due to its size, the Trybula Foundation limits its activities to no more than three, non-competing support efforts at any one time.  For efforts that extend beyond its current resident expertise, the Trybula Foundation has a nationwide network of other small, expert organizations to supplement its capabilities.

The Global Market is changing in part due to the supply chain issues that has disrupted deliveries of critical material.  The implication is that the world will become segmented into regional supply markets.  This creates challenges in finding nearby suppliers.  The opportunities of being able to access an increasing number of tax free zones in countries will be significant.  It’s tough to do this transition alone. 

Specific Areas of Opportunities


We are technology curious.  With a background of experience in miniaturization of both electronics and products, new technology interests us.  From semiconductors to nanotechnology to metamaterials, our efforts are focused on understanding the capabilities and limitations of the applying these technologies to existing manufacturing to ensure a successful outcome.

Technology Development and Insertion: The Foundation works with organizations in evaluating hi-tech and emerging technologies to determine the potential for successful inclusion in the organization's strategic direction. With experience that ranges from startups to major corporations, the Foundation's business acumen can help meld the two worlds of business and technology to provide guidance to ensure successful programs.

Emerging Technologies: Developing a new concept, building a prototype, or significantly enhancing existing products are non-trivial efforts.  There are a myriad of challenges including protecting ideas (IP) and processes (trade secrets), modifying existing, successful products without destroying current markets, and creating new processes to produce the emerging technologies.  Our experience has worked in evolving successful concepts and planning for manufacturing the desired devices with long term reliability and cost effectiveness.

Emerging Companies: Our work with "start-ups" is strictly on a pro-bono basis. Typically, we will work with one or maybe two companies at any given time. Our focus in on the development and insertion of technology, business and marketing plans, and job creation. Most small companies that fail are profitable!  Cash flow considerations are critical to the long-term survival of these companies.  We do not accept unsolicited business plans or proposals.  Our staff has reviewed over 80 business startups and provide feedback on their efforts.  Initial discussions are welcome.

Important Thought: New and emerging technologies are always a challenge. There are numerous warnings about possible dangers, which may not always be accurate. There have been a number of concerns about nanotechnology and that it might cause one to have a myriad of concerns about the possible risk of using nanomaterials/chemicals. Now, the application of metamaterials is growing and some have the potential to be problematic.  Our staff is involved in the development of procedures to ensure safety in both manufacture and application of these developing materials.  Yes, one must be careful and evaluate the risks, but one needs to remember the following quote:

“ While there is no such thing as a safe chemical, it must be realized there is no chemical that cannot be used safely by limiting the dose or exposure. Poisons can be safely used and be of benefit to society when used appropriately. “
