Senior Connection, Connect Information
Senior Connection provides an array of services that educate senior citizens on how to use computers and how to confidently re-connect online with their family and friends. Kenton Dyck, the founder of Senior Connection, graduated from Vancouver Island University and founded this business in 2014.
This business idea came from his grandmother. Kenton was always explaining “What is Facebook?”, “How to use a smart phone?” to her and he realized that this frustration must be common among seniors. “I want to help them to reach the modern life and rise their life quality.” Kenton said.
Before Startup Nanaimo facilitated VIU Business Plan Competition (BPC) last fall, this business was just a thought in Kenton’s mind until in a BPC informational event he met Robert Plante, a business mentor who to guided Kenton to make this idea become a real business.
After the BPC, Kenton started to set up this business and promote it. In a short time, he helped over 40 clients with the
computer skills to reach the modern world. Senior Connection is a young startup; he believes that the company is still in the early introduction stage and it needs to be come more known to people.
Kenton is managing Senior Connection by himself. “At present, the biggest challenge for me is I want a partner to build relationships with senior homes.” Kenton said. There are more than eight senior homes in Nanaimo but it was difficult to build internal connections with them.
In this young founder’s view, Senior Connection is not only about educating elderly minds but also on combating Alzheimer’s disease. In the future, Kenton wants to lead Senior Connection to become a bridge between seniors and juniors. The seniors can share their professional skills to the youth. At the same time, the youth can teach them the technical skills.
