A Computer Business That Gives Back Through Tech Upgrades How inQuo helps startups and struggling small businesses in need of equipment.

It was not a good time for Miguel Torres' 4-year-old computer to give up the ghost. Torres, owner of Proremodels, a West Jordan, Utah, home remodeling company, was already strapped for cash when his computer conked out.

He poured $300 into repairs; it crashed again, and he couldn't afford to replace it. He got by on borrowed computers, but his tech problem was hobbling his business, leaving him unable to answer e-mail, issue estimates or create invoices in a timely manner. "It was a really bad time for me," Torres says.
