Linda Rolf, founder of Quest Technology Group, is an entrepreneur who is driven by creating things. "When I became part of an early automation team at CNA Insurance, I knew I had discovered the magic of transforming repetitive manual steps into technology-drive processes," she said. "Quest Technology Group was created in 1991 by the simple sentence 'If you want to start your own company, we’ll come with you.' Those words led to a 23-year relationship with our first startup client. We created technology solutions that were built on the principle of understanding customer strategy."
Today, Quest Technology Group provides enterprise software development, IT strategy, IT managed services, data analytics, SaaS development, SaaS private online communities through Quwho.com. "We work with companies to preserve their existing technology investments while achieving strategic goals," Rolf said. "This includes discovering opportunities to connect legacy systems, extract and leverage data to support strategic initiatives, align people with day to day operations, and focus on business before new technology spending."
Rolf's advice for aspiring entrepreneurs is to balance focus and flexibility. "Focus, listen, and stay true to your mission, but don't be afraid to pivot," she said. "Don't compare yourself to what you think others are."
