Passionate about helping small businesses, Nathan Austin has made a difference in the community, and for the economy. As an author, international speaker, coach, and small business & community advocate, he brings 20 years of entrepreneurship, business management, sales, IT experience, and relationship building to Capitalism & Community.

After co-founding Mytech Partners, Inc. in 2000, Austin focused on helping clients, and community partners achieve their organizational goals, through strategic planning, and alignment of technology investments with business objectives. As a sales & marketing coach, Austin works to develop & improve systems, processes, and training for branch teams to “Make IT Easy”.


As an author of Capitalism & Community: A Partnership for a Better Tomorrow, Austin desires to knock down geographic barriers by helping small businesses and community organizations world-wide. Nearly every major city across the globe faces similar challenges, and Austin wants to inspire EVERY small business around the world to connect with ONE community organization and donate their product or service. Austin believes that to truly make a difference, business and community need to coexist, and intentionally strive toward mutual success.  


 Austin works to practice the Capitalism & Community message as he works with and serves on the board of a local Twin Cities non-profit (Cookie Cart) where they provide life and job skills through youth employment in their North Minneapolis and East St. Paul bakeries. Austin served as a facilitator of a small business owner peer group for seven years with the Heartland Technology Group. He is active in the business community, and speaks locally, internationally, and at association conferences, trade shows, and industry peer events.


 At home in Minnesota, Austin married his beautiful wife Shaina in 2013, and feels blessed to spend life with his best friend. Austin also earned a black belt in Tae Soo Do, a yellow sash in Hwa Rang Do, and for balance and recreation enjoys reading, running, fishing, golfing, and snowboarding.
