Tech Talent South Partnership Proposal

Based on our initial October 4th meeting, we have put together the following proposal based on where we think a partnership may best align between Tech Talent South & Tax Management Associates. These proposed tiers are meant to act as a starting point for discussion on the Tech Talent South partnership with Tax Management Associates. We’re excited and dedicated to finding the perfect, tailored fit and can customize these tiers further to fit TMA goals and needs.


Partnership Goal

Our goal with any joint partnership is to encourage and foster continued growth within companies, especially when it comes to tech and entrepreneurial growth. With existing connections and similar community goals, we strongly believe a TTS and Tax Management Associates partnership could blossom into a strong community partnership that inspires passionate students, alumni, and team members from both of our networks to “Do Something BIG!”
