“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” — Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States of America
OWNING THE MOMENT
DALLAS — Derrell Noris bolted Corporate America sometime in 2016.
It wasn’t long thereafter that the rising Texas businessman had ultimately crossed paths with his life’s defining moment.
“I worked as a software engineer for five years,” Noris, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, referring to his tenure at TATA Consultancy Services, where he customarily worked in mobile app development. “I left Corporate America in 2016.”
For Noris, 33, parting ways with his former employer turned out to be arguably the most rewarding decision of his young life.
The founder of Fresh Tech Solutionz, a Houston-based company that Noris witness go into full operations in December 2016, this rising company recently celebrated five years of existence.

For Noris and Co., his path to entrepreneurial success comes amid humble beginnings.
“I have always been an entrepreneur and I love tech,” said Noris, explaining how his competitive drive in life has helped propelled him for reaping sustained success as a businessman. “After college, I landed one of my dream jobs in tech, but I just wanted more.”
“More” is what Noris steadfastly pursued until he had ultimately garnered the favorable results he diligently sought.
“I left a comfortable desk job and decided to become a tech company founder,” Noris, the chief technology officer and co-founder of DeckLaunch LLC, explained. “It was terrifying to leave the comforts of corporate, but my competitive nature has driven me to find bigger and better customers. Five years later, I am happier than (I’ve ever been), and I am the founder and CEO of an award-winning business.”
Located 5120 Woodway Drive, Suite #10004 in the greater Houston Metroplex, Fresh Tech Solutionz is widely known for developing affordable mobile apps and websites for businesses as a unique way to enable companies mobilize business processes and, most importantly, increase customer engagement.
Years ago, Fresh Tech Solutionz assembled what is known as the ‘GHBC Mobile App,’ a development that had ultimately given way to the app being officially published in October 2017.

“We would love to create similar mobile apps for other Chambers of Commerce around the world,” Noris told Making Headline News during a March 2016 interview, adding that consumers can now download the ‘GHBC Mobile App’ from their Apple App store or at Google Playstore.
In essence, Fresh Tech Solutionz has become a fixture for increasing revenue and customer engagement through mobile apps and technology, Noris told MHN.
Amongst the company’s core services are:
- Business level mobile applications for small businesses and nonprofits
- Custom app development
- Custom software development
- Website development and,
- Social media marketing and brand development
- Business services including consulting, printing, and other services
Another factor in Noris’ success as the face of Fresh Tech Solutionz is his keen ability to attract a solid group of supporters.
“My mentor, Marc (Davenport), has encouraged me and my team to think big and grow our businesses daily,” Noris said. “He loves telling me, ‘Close the deal,’ and that is how we’ve become such a reputable company. I was also really inspired by my lifelong friends, Brent Dirden and Keith Ferguson. They both started their own businesses years before I did and were the only peers that I had with experience in running successful businesses.”
Since its inception, Fresh Tech Solutionz has generated more of a global presence, given the company has acquired clients in four different continents, most notably West Africa, South Africa, South America, North America, and Europe.
“In North America, we have clients in Canada, Washington, DC, Atlanta, Mexico, Ohio, Texas, California, Louisiana, and Virginia,” Noris said.
Interestingly enough, Fresh Tech Solutionz has partnered with The Ion to provide a monthly webinar called Perfecting Your Pitch. In addition, the company has produced what is known as the Fresh Tech Tipz podcast, which airs every Monday via Facebook Live at 12 p.m. CST.
That’s not all, said Noris, a graduate of Prairie View A&M University with a degree in Computer Engineering (he minored in Physics).
“We are partnering with Prairie View A&M University to host a pitch competition with the engineering students next semester,” Noris announced. “We had our Fifth Year Anniversary Extravaganza on December 16 (also known as Fresh Tech Solutionz Day). We will be hosting Fresh Seedz: Baby Shark Tank for our youth late next year.”
Generally, Fresh Tech Solutionz accommodates people and groups ranging in ages 18 to 30 for its startup services.
“We also cater to ages 25 to 50 for existing business for our technology services,” Noris said. “We are not just the typical mobile app development company. We actually develop business strategies around the technology to help maximize the return on investment. Most app firms just create the app, but we strategize how to help the entire business while integrating current processes with technology.

For all the right reason.
