40 Under 40
by The Record, February 25, 2009
Occupation: founder of PeaceWorks Computer Consulting
Contribution: technological support
His company has been called the Robin Hood of the IT world and it's a name that seems to fit.
PeaceWorks Computer Consulting, the brain work of Nolan Andres, provides affordable, high-quality technological solutions to non-profit organizations and small businesses.
Andres started the company when he was just 25 and a computer science student at the University of Waterloo.
Now, at the age of 39, his company has grown to employ more than 20 people.
"When it comes down to it, I'm not motivated by money," he says. "I'm strongly motivated by the need I see in the community."
Andres' dream came about after he realized that many social justice organizations lack financial and technological resources.
By offering his technological skills, he could help these organizations incorporate affordable solutions that would improve their work.
Andres says the financial sacrifices he and his staff make by working at PeaceWorks are their way of giving back to the community.
The staff may not make a lot of money, but they all feel good about the job they're doing.
Hari Stirbet, who nominated Andres for 40 Under 40, describes PeaceWorks as "a company with a soul" and describes Andres as "a visionary."
"He has tremendous passion for helping others," Stirbet says.
