Archives For creating successful business

Welcome to my Blog. My name is Steve Sadler and I am the President / CEO of SCATE Technologies, Inc. (SCATE). SCATE is a privately owned and funded commercial software development company that was founded in 2002 and incorporated back in April 2003.

Since the company’s conception, our talented staff has been busy researching, inventing, development and patenting a variety of technologies that have successfully penetrated and crossed multiple markets.

During SCATE’s first four years of business, our team created and launched five (5) revolutionary software applications in areas of eLearning, Media Creation and Sharing, Engineering Analysis, and Staffing. Each technology was created to be a standalone business silo, complete with its own focused business and marketing plan, IT infrastructure, IP patents, and various trade/service marks.

To date many of these applications have been adopted as a standard by such companies as GM, Chrysler, Daimler, Ford, Coca-Cola, BlueCross/BlueShield, McKesson Pharmaceutical, Honeywell, Quicken Loans, RL Polk and thousands of others.

Now that we are into our sixth year of business, it is truly amazing to me that this was all achieved without external investment or producing any form of long term debt. In addition to that, SCATE made a profit in 2007 while many other companies were struggling and in some cases filing for bankruptcy.

I contribute our success to faith in God, hard work, patience, perseverance, focus and the blessing of a great team of like minded individuals.

Most of us know that building a business is tough, but building a business in today’s extremely crowded and competitive market requires a different breed of entrepreneur. This new type of person cannot survive long term without the attributes I described above.

I would like to hear of your business success stories or answer questions on how to build a successful business.
