To build an IT services consulting firm that is respected by clients for the quality and service of its deliverable at a competitive price.
To recruit in the Akron/Canton, OH community, recent local high school graduates who have the aptitude, flair, and talent for IT services and provide them with training in technical, social and work culture so that in the short term they have the skills to meet customer expectations in a job. In the longer term, our goal is to train them in IT services so as to get customers to outsource work to us.
Our clients’ interests will always come first – we firmly believe that if we serve our customers well, our own success will follow.
We pride ourselves on our people and our reputation – we will dedicate ourselves to fully develop our people and establish among them a strong work ethic and commitment to excellence. Our reputation is critical in our industry and if it is ever diminished it is the most difficult to restore.
We take pride in the professional quality of our work. We will always seek to under promise and over deliver. While profit making is essential to any business, for us it will never be at the expense of a customer or an employee.
Our Name, Our Story…
Mani Subramanian founded Fortisure Ventures LLC (the managing company of FortisureIT) in San Francisco, CA on January 5, 2011. His two daughters Priyal and Meghna are the co-founders. Since the beginning, the name Fortisure has represented our commitment to clients, employees and the community. Over the years we have participated in start-ups and supported meaningful causes.
Foremost in our name is the importance of “fortitude”. It is derived from the Latin word, fortis, meaning strength, courage, and bravery even during challenging times or in the face of adversity. To facilitate this confidence, one needs the comfort of “assurance” and support for the “future”. So Fortisure was created based on the notion that we would provide companies, partners and their employees with the strength, courage, bravery and support they need for the future.
Today, FortisureIT (pronounced fort-i-sure-I.T.) reflects that same commitment. This time, it is a commitment to our clients nationally, to our employees, to the Akron-Canton community and to our nation at large.
With over 40 years of management experience in the global information technology industry, Mani started his entrepreneurial journey in 1993 when, as a new immigrant with a capital of $150,000, he founded IT Solutions. Subsequently re-branded as Caritor in 2003, the company grew to over 3500 employees over four continents with an annual revenue of $150 million in 2006. In 2007, with funding of $1 billion from Citibank, Mani architected the buy-out of Keane, a Boston-based company over six times Caritor’s size in terms of revenue. Mani presided as Executive Chairman of Keane until its acquisition by the Japanese conglomerate NTT Data on December 30, 2010.
Mani also co-founded Influence Software, a business intelligence company, jointly with Marv Mouchawar in 1996 which was sold to Informatica, formerly listed in Nasdaq as INFA, in December 1999.
Since 2011, Mani and his family have founded Fortisure Ventures to support promising opportunities in technology businesses. He and his family established Fortisure Foundation in 2011 to serve communities and causes important to the family.
