Founded in 2012, eGurus is the brainchild of CEO, Jennifer Cairns, a self-described nerd with a heart. Jennifer first came up with the concept for eGurus when, as a hands on technology trainer, she was inundated with requests from friends to help their parents adapt to new technology in their lives. She noticed that mature adults in particular, would struggle with embarrassment about not understanding new technology as much as they would with the technology itself. Jennifer decided to change all of that with a “no such thing as a dumb question” approach to technology support for mature adults.
eGurus mission is to make a difference in society by empowering older adults with knowledge around technology and its usage in order to remove fear, facilitate independence and foster relationships.
The company provides in-home and remote technology setup, tutoring and support to simplify technology and empower people. Its specialists are different because they understand how the aging process relates to learning and they customize one-on-one education experiences accordingly. eGurus focuses on building relationships that remove the stigma around technology and that keep customers coming back in order to stay on top of the ever-changing technology in their lives.

" When I was hired to manage content for Indigenous Corporate Training Inc.?s newly launched blog (Working Effectively with Aboriginal Peoples?.com), I faced a wall of fear and confusion as I did not have experience working the backend of a website. In one hour, in my home, Jenn broke down the process in a logical, step-by-step format that removed the fear and provided me with the skills and confidence I needed to access the site, insert content, videos, pictures and hyperlink between postings. I highly recommend her as a teacher. Julie Domvile, writer, blog manager "
" After experiencing computer frustration for about two years, a friend gave me the phone number for Jennifer Cairns, the computer tutor for seniors. I thank this friend every time we meet as his suggestion has given my life a whole new dimension. Jennifer Cairns turned out to be a wonderful person with a winning personality, great sense of humour and the patience of a Saint. Her methods are simple and learning about computers with her is fun and one of life's great pleasures. I recommend her to anyone with computer problems. If she can't help, nobody can. She is a fountain of knowledge and has the ability and grace to share it all. She's also gorgeous! Lorne John Dubay "
" Tina, I want to thank you so much, from me, from my parents, and from my brothers and sisters. You went beyond what could have ever been expected of you, many times, and in many ways, in helping my parents. We recognize and appreciate all that you did for my parents, and for us. I am so grateful that you were there to help them. For you information, I talked with Cleve on that Saturday. He also sent me a follow-up email, last week. He has taken the issue to corporate security. Tina, you are a wonderful tutor, and you work for an admirable organization. I appreciate the specialization you offer with seniors. Thank you for your knowledge and your people skills. R. Jones Vancouver, BC "
