People ask us if it was really that bad starting our business in June of 2008, at the beginning of the worst financial crisis in 80 years.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 07, 2013
Sixclear, a National Instruments Alliance Partner based in Austin TX, celebrates 5 years of business with a LabVIEW training discount.
Statistics on small business survival aren’t particularly encouraging. According to the US Small Business Administration, only about half of those businesses see 5 years in operation.
“People ask us if it was really that bad starting our business in June of 2008, at the beginning of the worst financial crisis in 80 years,” recounts Brian Spears, Sixclear Co-founder. “We just have to throw back our heads and laugh and laugh because, yes, yes it was.”
Early investment in developing, recording, and delivering a fully online LabVIEW training course put a strain on the young company, which remained solvent by developing custom LabVIEW applications, which continues until today.
Jassem Shahrani, Sixclear Co-founder continues, “But things got better, much better after we released our online LabVIEW training in January of 2010.”
Since then, Sixclear began delivering that week-long LabVIEW course in the classroom, both at companies’ facilities and open-enrollment locations.
Though still a privately held company, Sixclear leadership indicates that the company has grown by double or triple digits in each year of their existence. The company now offers other LabVIEW-based products and services besides training.
To commemorate their anniversary, the company will offer a buy-two-get-one-free deal until the end of June for their flagship offering, Lucid LabVIEW Fundamentals Training online. Spears describes it as “the most generous discount we’ve ever offered”. Full details are available at their news blog.
