 #MadeInPBC Spotlights are a weekly series of the Palm Beach Tech Association, featuring accomplished entrepreneurs in the Palm Beaches.

This week we feature David Hartmann, Florida Atlantic University grad and the Founder of The SilverLogic, a Boca Raton based software company that designs and builds applications, websites and marketing campaigns

What does your business do?

We like to say that we make ideas happen. What we mean with that is that we work with our clients to develop technology to help solve their problems.

Who are your clients?

We work with anyone from a Startup to an Enterprise.

What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?

Entrepreneurship runs in my family. My father runs a company in Germany and my mother runs one here in the States as well as in Germany. When I was in college, I was doing a lot of freelance

What’s your favorite part about what you do?

Is there a better job than making peoples ideas a reality? We get to work with our clients to help them take something from an “I wish I could…” or “I really want to…” and turn it into something in the real world. There is no better feeling than that.

What are three fun facts about yourself?

I grew up in Germany I have a blind, toothless cat you can pictures of on my instagram. I really enjoy escape rooms.

Why the Palm Beaches?

In all honesty? The climate. Both climates– I love the weather, I’m not a big fan of winter. But the business climate here is really beneficial as well.

How has Palm Beach Tech helped you?

The team at Palm Beach tech has been a great help in building the tech community here in the Palm Beaches. They’ve been a great advocate for us, and we are really looking forward to expanding the work that we do with them in the future.
