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.

" Jennifer has assisted me with all of my computer and telephone issues for the past 2 years. She has always been helpful and willing to meet with me whenever I had issues. She is very quick to identify the problem and she teaches me how to deal with these problems should they occur again in the future. I would strongly recommend Jennifer any time if you need help with your computer, smart phone or tablet. Bob Walch "
" Tina was amazing in helping me set up my new computer. Not only is she very knowledgeable about all the technical aspects involved, but she is also one of very few "tech" people I have ever met in my life who is very skilled at interacting with less techy people and talking in plain, clearly understandable language. If I ever have any problems with my computer, or if I am in need of training assistance, I will definitely ask for Tina! "
" Chris Mitchell has been helping me with technological problems in my computer as well as tutoring me about using both the computer and my new smart phone. I was so impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and patience! He made me feel that I could master these devices instead of feeling overwhelmed by them. He was very good at explaining how and why things worked and I highly recommend him to anyone who's feeling that they can't learn to use the new technology. Thanks Chris! "
