North Shore Solutions
Matthew Turcotte was the first student to participate in the TIE program at Clarkson. Matt started North Shore Solutions as North Shore Web Development in 2007, when he was only a junior in high school, with the goal of providing web design to businesses in his community. Two years later, he launched Host North Shore, which would be the hosting division of the company. Then in 2010, he renamed his company to North Shore Solutions to encompass all the services that are offered.
Today, North Shore Solutions offers a number of valuable services to their clients including web design, web hosting, logo design, print publications design and printing, backup services, graphic design and consulting services. In addition to having two offices, one in Watertown, N.Y. and one in Clayton, N.Y., they work on projects for clients not only throughout New York but the entire United States.
Turcotte also founded Grindstone Holdings, LLC while a junior at Clarkson. Grindstone Holdings is a real estate company that owns a portfolio of residential, commercial, warehousing and storage endeavors throughout the North Country.
