Tobias Gilbert Founder and CEO of IndigoWave Tech Solutions


By Staff

Tell us about your company and services. 
I founded IndigoWave Tech back in 2019 with four basic principles of yoga in mind. Mental clarity, simplicity, self-study, and connectedness. It has been our mission the bring these cornerstones to our clients and their employees by way of technology with the primary aim of providing them with peace of mind.
Indigo is the color of the third eye chakra, also called the mind’s eye or inner eye. Metaphysically located in the center of the forehead, it acts as the individual’s center of wisdom, and higher consciousness. These methodologies are deeply engrained in how we add value to our clients’ businesses. 

We offer a full suite of professional services necessary for small companies with less than 100 employees to thrive in a highly technical economy. Specializing in everything from cybersecurity, cloud development, IT management and vCIO service. We recognized that small to medium-sized businesses are in need of a team that genuinely cares about the success of their business, all while providing the same quality of service given to large companies. With expertise working in industries supporting staff in Medicine, Law, Insurance, Retail and Tech we are here to help offload their IT woes so that they can focus on growing and running their business.

What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
I like to be called a spiritual entrepreneur. You will find that a lot of what I do is rooted in matters of the spirit. Naturally, it’s where everything starts. I have always been big on contributing to the positive impact in the spaces I have had the honor of being a part of. I understood the critical importance of safe spaces and having a supportive community at an early age. Being a part of a cause, whose mission is to see that those communities make the world a better place has been monumental in keeping me motivated in doing what I do. Entrepreneurship or politics seemed to be the most effective means of making that happen. I don’t think I have the heart for the red tape of politics, so entrepreneurship only seemed natural.
What is your process to prepare for a pitch with a potential client?

I meditate. I know this is a bit unconventional but, again, mental clarity is one of the basic principles that I founded the company on. I can’t possibly hope to authentically provide that to my clients without embodying it myself. I look at every business owner coming to me with their business like a parent coming to me with their child. Meditation is a perfect opportunity to sit in stillness and really clear my mind so that I have the energetic capacity to give whoever is on the other end of that discovery call the intention, connectedness, and simplicity that permeates throughout the business. It makes for a great first impression and has proven to make the potential client feel safe in discussing their baby with me. 

What does success look like for you? 
I have had to reevaluate this a few times over the years. Many entrepreneurs will say that success is measured in Return of Income, Key performance indicators, and profit. True success, for me, accomplishes ethereal good and the collective progression of the communities I and my company serve. It’s slow, rooted in actively giving gratitude daily, the love of what I do and being in service of others. The reason I say I have had to reevaluate this a few times is because there was a time where if there were months where capital was slow or if there weren’t people showing interest in our services that I would suddenly feel like I wasn’t accomplishing what I set out to do. This perspective made success fleeting and temporary. Shifting my mindset has allowed me to remain grounded that even when things may not be the best, I am still my ancestors’ wildest dreams.
What has been the most challenging aspect of being an entrepreneur? 
There have been a lot of hard pills that I have had to swallow on this journey so picking one is difficult. Many self-reflective mirror moments that caused me to spiral into an abyss that had me questioning why I even set out to do any of this. I will say that being ok with being comfortable in discomfort has been the one that I have had to sit with the most. I have found that getting too comfortable with how things are in their current state is a breeding ground for complacency and in the tech industry this is a recipe for disaster. Being able to be ok with a constantly changing landscape and being able to navigate the space with a calm crown has been a challenge but I think I have been able to do so effectively. It has been challenging yet exciting because I have been given the opportunity to learn and relearn something new about myself on a constant basis.
What makes for a good client?
My ideal client recognizes the transformative power of technology and embraces cloud-based solutions as a strategic advantage. They understand the importance of agility and scalability in today’s digital landscape and seek to leverage the benefits of the cloud to streamline their operations. This client values data security and compliance, recognizing that their sensitive information and customer data must be protected at all costs. They appreciate the value of proactive IT management and are willing to invest in a long-term partnership to ensure their cloud infrastructure is optimized and future-proofed. Lastly, they prioritize seamless collaboration and communication across their organization, understanding that a well-designed and robust cloud environment is crucial for fostering innovation and productivity among their teams.
What kind of experience can someone expect when utilizing your services? 
Our potential clients can expect a hassle-free experience that takes the burden of IT management off their shoulders. We start by assessing their existing IT setup and figuring out a game plan that suits their specific needs and goals. We’re on the lookout for any potential issues, thanks to proactive monitoring and support, so they won’t have to worry about sudden crashes or downtime disrupting their operations. When something does go wrong, our responsive help desk will be there to fix things in quickly.
They can also kiss goodbye to those pesky software updates and maintenance tasks because the we will handle all of that for you. We’ll keep their systems up to date, secure, and performing at their best. Plus, we’ll provide them with strategic guidance, keeping them in the loop about the latest tech trends and showing them how to make the most out of their IT setup. It’s not just a one-off deal either; IndigoWave becomes their long-term partner, always ready to assist them, offer advice, and help your business thrive. Our oldest client is a 40 person political polling firm that has been on a yearly contract for almost three years now. This speaks for itself.
Where would you like to see your business in the next five years?
I see us expanding exponentially over the next five years now that we have delved into the world of artificial intelligence. I’d like for us to continuing building strong relationships with our existing clients and being a trusted partner for future clients. I envision IndigoWave doing great things beyond just managed services. Creating safe spaces is something that is incredibly important to me, so I see a future where we are creating spaces for people to break into tech and elevating representation in the industry.
