Our History & Vision.
David White, Founder of Develop CENTS
David White, founder of Develop CENTS, had a dream: to put his IT knowledge and experience to use for nonprofit organizations and small businesses dedicated to improving their communities.
After graduating from Covenant College with a B.A. in Community Development, David spent a year working for AmeriCorps in Boston, followed by a stint at a Drupal services company. He then returned to Chattanooga, where he spent two years as an Internal Technical Support Specialist and Infrastructure Engineer before launching Develop CENTS in 2013, making his dream a reality.
CENTS is an acronym for Computing, Equipping, Networking, Training, and Supporting—these are our missions. As our clients are committed to developing their communities, we’re committed to developing their technology, and freeing their resources in better pursuit of their missions.
Our professional affiliations include the United Way’s Center for Nonprofits and the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce.

Why Choose Develop CENTS?
Our track record of success and respect for non-profit organizations has earned Develop CENTS the trust, cooperation, and business of many within the non-profit community.
Develop CENTS is one of the best IT companies Chattanooga Room in the Inn has had. They managed to get our network running smoothly and now we rarely need the amount of services we used to. Everything is so much more efficient and we have them and their expertise to thank. Not only are they good at what they do, they are very professional. They are always prompt and very reachable. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to switch.
