Need a Nerd repairs prized personal electronics

MILLEDGEVILLE — Sometimes we don’t realize how much a smartphone means to daily function until it takes a destructive hit. A local small business can fix what ails any personal device quickly and professionally.

Need a Nerd, located at 120 N. Wayne St., knows that smartphones and computers are extremely important.

The outfit calls itself “Middle Georgia’s No. 1 solution for all of your cell phone repair and computer repair needs.”

The tech experts specialize in iPhone, smartphone, iPod, iPad, PC and Mac repairs and much more. 

“If your electronic has a power button, there is a good chance we can repair it,” states the business website.

Co-owner Tommy Cook credits Mark Brownlow with the Need a Nerd startup.

Brownlow approached Digital Bridges in summer 2012 searching for a small business space to handle his device repairs.

“(Brownlow’s) traffic started picking up a lot since he had a physical location, where people could come and drop stuff off. He had 10 or 12 people waiting on him at the time, and we saw there was a lot of potential for growth with his business. We tried to do what we could to help him,” Cook said. “That went on for about a year or so, and when we all found out Digital Bridges was going to be sun setting. Mark got a job at Georgia Military College and was going to let the Need a Nerd thing go to the side. We all approached him and asked in exchange for an ownership stake if we could pick it up and run with it.”

Cook, along with other partners Colin Moore, Daniel Pittman and seed supporter David Sinclair, grabbed the banner.

The team located the North Wayne space. Cook said everyone learned how to do the necessary phone, computer and tablet repairs and began operations.
