TouchSuite launches Credit Card Processing for CBD Merchants

TouchSuite launches Credit Card Processing for CBD Merchants

CBD Merchants in the U.S. and Canada can now process credit card payments


BOCA RATON, FL. Nov. 15, 2018 TouchSuite announced today that it has begun accepting CBD merchant account applications in the U.S. and Canadian markets.  TouchSuite will underwrite merchants selling CBD products online or in a card present setting. This change comes after a thorough review and understanding of the risks associated with the industry. CBD accounts will be boarded via a domestic sponsor bank relationship. This enables TouchSuite to aggressively pursue merchants serving a hypergrowth segment.

CBD is traditionally been perceived as having legal and regulatory risks. As a result, merchants have been forced to pay exurbanite processing rates. Additionally, merchants that were early adopters in selling CBD products were forced to open off shore merchant accounts. These off-shore merchant accounts would indiscriminately raise fees, and negatively impact the cash flow cycles of business owners. As a result of today’s announcement, CBD merchants will benefit from more efficient processing rates and have access to TouchSuite’s support and operations teams.

“We are thrilled about the opportunity to help CBD merchants accept credit cards. CBD is a high growth market that is expected to grow at double digit rates in the coming decade. As CBD products transition from perceived inaccuracies to mainstream, TouchSuite is well positioned as a processing partner.” said Sam Zietz, Chief Executive Officer for TouchSuite.


About TouchSuite: Headquartered in Boca Raton Florida, TouchSuite is a leading financial technology company that delivers business solutions for small to mid-sized companies across different industries. Offerings include point-of-sale systems, payment processing services, SEO solutions, working capital and marketing services. TouchSuite positions itself as the entrepreneur’s partner, delivering solutions that help business owners thrive within the community.

Building a Palm Beach Tech Intern Program

Building a Palm Beach Tech Intern Program

Recap on the 2018 Palm Beach Tech Association Intern Forum

On September 28, 2018, the education committee of Palm Beach Tech Association held the Internship Forum, alongside four South Florida Universities; Lynn University, Florida Atlantic University, Palm Beach Atlantic University, and Palm Beach State College.

Led by Michael Fowler (FP&L), Cathy Miron (eSilo) & Barbara Cambia (Lynn University), the effort included over 50 executives and educators from throughout South Florida.

Palm Beach Tech Intern Forum

The overarching theme of this forum was to bring together executives, educators, interns, and everyone in between to focus on three major goals; building academic partnerships, identifying the intern program best practices, and developing a Palm Beach Tech Intern Program.

Click Here to Read our Followup Report

Through two breakout sessions, participants were able to come to several conclusions on the definition of success regarding intern programs. Most notable of all, participants found that interns were most successful when they learned both hard and soft skills prior to their careers.

A major piece of discussion was the proposal to begin a Palm Beach Tech Intern program serving at least 50 students and 15 companies.

Palm Beach Tech Intern Program

Palm Beach Tech is researching the launch of an intern program in Summer 2019.

We plan to work with higher education institutions throughout Florida to connect students with companies seeking interns who meet the following criteria:

  • Are a Palm Beach Tech Member
  • Provide Paid Internship(s)
  • Have Physical Presence in South Florida

The program areas we’re researching include mentorship programs, cross-training, and team-building, but will most certainly include:

  • Week-long Intern Bootcamp | Five full days of instruction on coding languages, project management, entrepreneurship, and soft skills.
  • Development Events | After work events with accomplished executives and professionals allowing rare opportunities to learn from those who’ve been there.

This program would incapsulate access to local talent and potential hires to prospective employers. We’re also working with tech council partners throughout the country to further develop this concept.

More information will be released in January 2019, and we hope that our effort to build a community of impassioned technologists will continue to build an educational pipeline for tech jobs throughout South Florida.

Hacking for our Community

This was wasn’t your typical hackathon… Instead of having teams just compete for money or to seed a business, the goal was to give back to the community. All teams were given the direction to “Build something that benefits the community.”

All hackers were invited to bond over the local community and their shared love of technology. Some teams leaned on their own experiences, while others tackled problems they’ve long seen.

Participants coded, hacked, built, and tested as the hours ticked by, but in the end there were 16 teams pitching our judging panel.



The Results

1st Place | Dark Knights: Athneal Viera, Varma indukuri, Praveen Chamarthimihai Oprescu, Norman Ortiz, Sravan Veeramsetty

Comprised mostly of employees of Office Depot, came in first place, they developed an AI chatbot for governments and nonprofits that integrated with multiple platforms, such as Web, Facebook, & Slack.

2nd Place* | Team Woco: Julissa Rosado, Sara Hashem, Sylke Lopez, Morgan Nimmons, Hanadi Alotaibi, Alina Gasperino, Elena Snyder, Michelle Bakels

Formed from the Palm Beach Tech Women’s Council, Team WoCo built a web based application that can be

added to library kiosks to provide resources to our community’s homeless. *This team is investing their winnings to continue the project

3rd Place | Eye of the Storm: Gustavo Gomez, Jean Merone, Satya, Chris Carpentier, Edwin Hernandez, Juan Martinez

Formed on Friday evening, they built a emergency management platform using IoT devices (specifically Ring Doorbells) to damage with video and track wind speed with machine learning.



Honorable Mention | Team Ambr: Carlos Lahrssen, Juan Alvarado, David Casteneda

This Major League Hacking team built an app that allows a user to place a phone on their dashboard to scan license plates for active Amber Alerts.


Getting Involved

Palm Beach Tech is already planning next year’s hackathon. Are you looking to get in on the action?

Attend one of our upcoming Palm Beach Tech events or become a member today! We look forward to having you on board for our other exciting events.

Palm Beach Tech supports two Economic Studies

This summer, Palm Beach Tech supported the Palm Beach County Workforce Skills Study and the City of West Palm Beach Economic Study.

The West Palm Beach study was facilitated by City’s Economic Development Department. Palm Beach Tech was noted as the city’s Innovation Cultivator’, bringing together businesses, educational institutions, incubators, accelerators, co-working spaces, and other support systems for innovation.

The Study also noted “West Palm Beach is entrepreneurial and innovative, with a high share of self-employed individuals and an above-average number of patent holding inventors living in the city.”

Some other key points from the Economic Development Study include:

  • Since 2012, employment in West Palm Beach has risen by more than 20% and 9% in the U.S..
  • From 2012-2017, Software/IT industry was one of the fastest growing clusters (24%).
  • Cybersecurity market will increase from $75 billion to $170 billion by 2020.
  • There’s an opportunity for the city to connect  businesses with additional resources, such as EB-5 Programs and potential investors.
  • Palm Beach County [is] home to many investment management firms and wealthy individuals, but the community lacks a strong investor community focused on local opportunities and startups.

The Palm Beach County Workforce Skills study was facilitated by the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County. Palm Beach Tech staff, members, and board members met with the study team several time to give high level insight and feedback.

While noting the Palm Beaches maintain over 1,400 technology companies, they trace the industry’s inception to the early days of computers. “The IT sector has been a critical component of the Palm Beach County economy since the IBM PC was created in Boca Raton in the early 1980s at an IBM facility that originally opened the 1960s.”

Some keep points from the Workforce Skills Study include:

  • Employers in the Information Technology sector are more focused on talent with skills and aptitude for the occupation than on specific degree requirements.
  • Business intelligence, data mining and informatics are particular skills areas in which it is difficult to find talent.
  • Information technology instruction should be embedded across the curriculum as demand for these skills continues to grow in virtually all sectors and occupations.
  • Job postings for IT & Telecommunications positions totaled almost 6,800 from May 2017 to May 2018, with a median posting duration of 39 days
  • IT skills are required in all business sectors. This level of demand across the economy often results in an inadequate pipeline of talent.

Palm Beach Tech building Mentor Network


Meet UNION, the software behind our new mentor network!

First developed by the 1776 Accelerator in Washington DC, it’s now used by organizations as local as the regional Tampa Bay Wave, and as large as the global 500 Startups.

Led by our intern Brandon Cohen, Palm Beach Tech will be formally adopting this program and scaling it in the Fall to benefit our entire community.



How it works?

Founders face some pretty difficult questions. How do they get access to resources they need to start, grow, or scale their companies? And, who should they turn to for advice & expertise?       

Our goal? Become the primary outlet for founders that fosters both mentorship & company growth. By utilizing UNION, we can help finally bridge the gap between connecting relevant mentors & mentees here in our community.

Mentors have the ability to create recurring office hours, create personalized curriculums, and connect with local founders either in person or virtually.

What are the benefits?

UNION allows us to provide a accessible pool of mentors for local founders, .

Mentees will have the opportunity to learn one-on-one (in person or virtually) from successful entrepreneurs who’ve built companies in the Palm Beaches, getting advice on business plans, team building, marketing, raising capital, and more.

We will utilize metric tracking (KPIs) to identify every minute of mentorship. This will allow us to identify company growth and measure consistent progress.

Why Mentor?

Mentors have the opportunity to provide invaluable advice to others, many facing the same hurdles faced by others at one point or another. All in all, helping others is a great way to support your community.

We’re on the lookout for the best and brightest entrepreneurs, technologists, and business executives in the Palm Beaches.
