Connecting people with community resources

Building a successful business of any size requires vision, innovation, and hard work. That’s the same approach we take at Wintek Business Solutions—offering leading-edge fiber-optic connections, secure protection, and local customer service expertise to businesses across greater Lafayette.

Strong networks mean nothing, however, if we do not also connect people to strong community resources. That’s why Wintek Business Solutions (WBS) is honored to support numerous local organizations with financial sponsorship, educational programs, and event connectivity.

When considering sponsorship, WBS evaluates three elements for the communities we serve:

  • Education: Empowering residents with knowledge
  • Economic Development: Promoting and supporting positive economic development
  • Employee Engagement: Initiatives to which our employees (and their families) devote time and passion

Sponsorship examples

WBS offers education for badge programs, financial support for an annual carnival, and tours of the WBS Data Center. This builds connections between our work and community wellness while encouraging data-driven careers.
