Milestone Celebration - Our 7 Companies Thriving For 20+ Years!
Celebrating the Longevity of Our Seven Start-ups
When we embarked on the entrepreneurial path, we dreamed big. Today, we are able to look back on the journey of two incredible decades, acknowledging not just one, but seven of our very own business ventures that are thriving. We have been fortunate enough to build seven different companies that have managed to outlive the trials, tribulations, and shifting tides of the entrepreneurial market over the past 20 years.

According to the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 20% of small businesses fail within their first year. By the end of their fifth year, roughly 50% have fallen by the wayside. After a decade, only around a third survive. With this in mind, the sheer endurance of our seven companies lasting over 20 years becomes a humbling milestone.
Beyond the statistics, what truly signifies this achievement is the intangible value these businesses had managed to create and nurture. Each company has created meaningful work for people, created career-building opportunities and each represents a bold idea that refused to buckle under the pressures of the marketplace, instead adapting, growing, and ultimately becoming a valuable part of the business landscape.
Our success is sweeter because it is a shared achievement. Whether you're a new owner or part of a team across these seven companies, a loyal client, a stakeholder, or an encouraging well-wisher, this special achievement belongs to you too.
This milestone doesn't mark a finish line; rather, it reminds us that we are capable of beating the odds. As we look forward to the future, we're stirred with excitement instead of apprehension, equipped with the lessons of twenty years, and the indomitable spirit of entrepreneurs ready for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
Here's raising a toast to the next twenty years and beyond. The best is yet to come!
