About the Startup

Disability Tek offers a platform for sharing information about technology for people with disabilities. The ‘Set Ups’ and ‘Forums’ sections of the website provide a source of technological ‘gold’ for all people, from experienced technological gurus like Noah, to someone who is new to a disability and has no idea what to do or what is out there. The ‘Set Ups’ section also offers an opportunity for people to post visual images to add further meaning and clarification to their descriptions.

Noah Callan is calling upon everyone to share their knowledge and experiences to help others with disabilities to make great discoveries and be amazed in the quality of life that technology can give us all.

About the team

Noah Callan
Noah Callan

Noah is a 20-year-old entrepreneur who has cerebral palsy. He is CEO and founder of Disability Tek. Noah lives for the excitement of discovering new technology and its amazing impact on how it always dramatically changes the quality of his life. However, these discoveries can often take many months of exhaustive searches, emails and correspondence and being dependent on Noah’s own particular physical capabilities, sometimes finding the right combination of software and hardware through trial and error can make the experience a lonely one often filled with many disappointments and failures. Noah has reasoned that if everyone with a disability is able to share with others, how they access and use technology, then those with a similar disability can learn from this and overcome the trials and barriers in trying to source new technology for themselves.
