Blackfish is Two Years Old!
This week we are celebrating our second birthday here at Blackfish! Time certainly flies when you are having fun!
According to the Office of National Statistics data only 75% of our fellow companies born in 2016 will still be in existance now, so we must be doing something right! We're guessing quite a few of you have heard of us by now, and it certainly feels like the business is more recognised and is gaining momentum.
Would we advise anyone else to start a company like we did? In a word, yes. It is hard work and there is a lot that goes into running a business aside from the work that you want to do, but if you are committed those things just become part and parcel of it all. It is definitely emotionally involving, when you secure contracts when you have spent a great deal of time on the tender, it is a great feeling. Equally, when you narrowly miss out it hurts, but you just have to learn [from the mistakes] and move on.
Anyway, enough wittering on; we're off for some cake! A big thank you to everyone who has been part of our journey so far, we are looking forward to many more birthdays!
