The Company
About us

Technekes opened our doors in 2000, as two guys with a shared vision for this thing they called demand creation.

Today, Technekes is North America’s leading provider of demand creation services for agricultural, life sciences, healthcare, manufacturing, construction and other B2B manufacturers and distributors.

Our secret? It’s simple, really. We find our success in yours. Our overriding goal is to help you generate a profitable return on your marketing investment.

Community Involvement
giving back
Part of Technekes' culture is rolling up our sleeves, getting involved, and making a difference — both related and unrelated to our business.
Red shoe shootout
Our own Jack Ross is a nationally ranked shooter, so helping him found and sponsor the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte Red Shoe Shootout has been a natural fit for us. Since the first Shootout in 2011, Technekes has provided organizers, teams, volunteers, and of course, one heckuva sharpshooter.

all-in to fight cancer
When a mutual friend was diagnosed with cancer, Steve and Scott banded some friends together to found All-In To Fight Cancer, which hosts Texas Hold'em fundraisers. Proceeds go back to the local cancer community of healthcare providers, families, and survivors, and are dedicated to increasing public awareness and raising money to find a cure for cancer.
