Family-Owned Industry Leader RiseUp Technologies provides custom state-of-the-art IT solutions that secure, manage, and elevate businesses technology needs.

...as a family-owned business we are able to provide a personal-touch experience that’s tailored to our clients' needs. This makes us personally invested in our clients’ success.” Dave Krause

RiseUp Technologies was recently highlighted as “Most Influential Family-Owned Business” of 2019 by the Los Angeles Business Journal.

Family-owned businesses account for more than 60% of both the nations employment and U.S. GDP.¹ These businesses create an internal culture of stability, commitment, and authenticity.

“Their prevalence speaks to the positive impact family leadership has on customers. In fact, in a 2018 study of consumers’ impressions of different organizations, family-owned businesses were largely considered to be more stable, approachable, trustworthy and customer-friendly than other types of companies. Employees of family-owned businesses tend to be happier and more productive as well. (Magzanyan, 2019)²

Dave Krause along with his sister Susan Philp manage day to day operations at Los Angeles based RiseUp Technologies. RiseUp is known to be an “Elevated” IT Services company dedicated to helping small to medium sized businesses scale their operations and leverage the latest technologies to increase their competitive advantage. Krause and his team support local businesses by prescribing the right technical resources and tools so that they can compete in a much larger market, without having to make significant capital investments in infrastructure or operations.

In today’s environment where virtually every profitable business is made or broken based on their ability to utilize technology, being influential in this area has become a paramount goal for any tech support organization. RiseUp’s CEO Dave Krause remarks: “Influencing clients to make the right choices when it comes to technology is what we are uniquely qualified for and as a family-owned business we are able to provide a personal-touch experience that’s tailored to our clients' needs. This makes us personally invested in our clients’ success.”

Krause emphasizes one of the biggest challenges most businesses face when it comes to technology is education. “Most don’t know what they need to thrive and grow quickly, let alone how to procure and integrate it within their current infrastructure. There’s also the massively growing concern of Cyber Security. This is a bigger problem than most realize because many businesses that get hit [with ransomware, viruses, or malware] don’t report it. It would be damaging to their brand. We commonly get calls asking how to respond to an emergency situation - my response is if you’re not already prepared, it’s sadly too late”. Educating their clients has become priority for RiseUp so businesses are up to date with protection from the latest techniques hackers utilize to gain ransom payments and steal intellectual property and trade secrets.

Another challenge that RiseUp helps their clientele with is leveraging the latest technologies that can turn their business from static to agile in today’s developing markets. Virtual technologies have transformed the landscape in recent years providing a level of redundancy and elasticity never seen before. Coupled with the latest Cloud offerings, companies ‘in the know’ can bring their entire workflow online and be able to leverage a growing pool of remote workers. RiseUp’s specialty has been transforming companies infrastructure and making them less location-dependant, integrating the latest cutting-edge technologies available that are delivered on point and on budget.

In 2019, RiseUp’s CEO Dave Krause has met with multiple California Senators and Los Angeles County representatives to discuss cyber and physical security concerns affecting businesses across Los Angeles. Krause has also advised Emergency Response teams on how they can detect and mitigate some emerging technologies that have recently interfered with rescue efforts in Southern California.
