Neil Hancock founded Portacom in his family garage in 1983 while just 20 years of age. At the time he was still at university and managed to obtain an overdraft and secure multinational dealership support while completing his studies in Digital Systems and Computing. Portacom soon outgrew his parent’s garage and became one of the State’s leading portable computing and communications businesses. From his West Perth premises Mr Hancock has been responsible for several technological innovations, including an interface board for notebooks, an internal touch mouse device for notebook computers, and a memory module for pocket computers.
