“Nerdies is a new type of business which focuses on all us nerds out there by offering a cool coffee shop environment where people of all ages come and pursue the things that they are interested in and love. Whether that is participating in a technology class, getting individualized tutoring, playing video games with friends or just hanging out in the Nerdies Caffeine Café, Nerdies provides a unique environment for all those people who think ‘smart is cool’ and are interested in pursuing activities they enjoy in this new tech world.
At its core Nerdies is a training and tutoring company with other services sprinkled in which uniquely fit the customer base. We want the nerd that is sitting at home wanting to learn how to program “mods for Minecraft”, we want the nerd that wants to learn how to design using Photoshop or Illustrator, or the nerd that would love learning about robotics but doesn’t have the knowledge or the community to do so. Unlike in generations past, being a nerd today is actually cool.”
