We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiffani Martin and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tiffani, how does your business help the community?
VisioTech.co is focused on the technological advancements of persons with disabilities. This community, which is dear and near to our hearts, has the opportunity to not only meet the expectations of society in such fields like education and the workforce but can thrive when simply given access. Through innovations and collaborations we can build a tomorrow where different abilities are seen as stepping stones and not obstacles. We are currently developing VisioTechU a learning system that integrates wearable technology with a STEM curriculum dedicated to grade school children with visual impairments.

What should our readers know about your business?
What excites me most about the work that we do is that we break societal barriers everyday. Access has been limited to the differently abled community due to the preconceived notions of our capabilities. We are driven by this and it is with innovation we are able to make headway in the tech space. The road to where we are today was challenging for me due to physical limitations. The lessons learned started with having a change of perspective on what an obstacle truly is…an opportunity. At our core VisioTech is more of a problem solver that utilizes technology in order to shift humanity forward. Creativity has been our greatest asset that differentiates us among our competitors because true creativity is birthed out of authenticity.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would start off with Southside on Lamar, because that is where my ideology of work was cultivated. For a great vibe and artistic views, I would go to Sandaga’s in East Dallas on a Sunday night and grab a loaded baked potato smothered in Texas brisket. Next we would go to Off The Record in lower Greenville to just hangout and search through a massive array of vinyl records. Catching one of the captivating exhibits at the African American museum at the Fair Park would definitely be on the itinerary. To satisfy our sweet tooth we would take a drive over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge into Trinity Groves to visit the Cake Bar. For serenity and to center ourselves in a cool, calming place we’d head over to Black Swan for some afternoon yoga and if we are feeling adventurous we can get tattoos from a Deep Ellum staple called Tiggers.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to shoutout and contribute my success to my husband and my family specifically my sister Tiara Moore Founder of Ladies for Arts, Culture & Education (ForeverLACE.org). This organization lended great resources and efforts toward mothers faced with challenges due to the pandemic.
