You’ve probably heard the story before about a couple of visionaries getting together somewhere in a basement or garage in Silicon Valley to start something big. We have, too, but mostly from the people who founded VirtualPBX. We are proud to be the industry leader in advanced business phone system design, but we’re equally proud of the fact that we didn’t start that way. Being as closely tied to our own small business heritage as we are has defined how we’ve run our business, designed our products, and given back to the business community. At this time when people often reflect on all that has been good in their lives, we’re grateful for, among many things, our humble beginnings.
Built From A Small Business, To Help Small Business
Admittedly, it may be hard to envision where we have come from now that we have employees all over the world and an ever-growing, dynamic core group in our San Jose headquarters. But because we have remained steadfast in our quest to help businesses boost their appearance, and thereby their revenue, with enterprise grade phone systems for startup prices, we’ve retained much of the identity and focus of a smaller organization. Now, with thousands of small businesses all relying on our products and services to level the playing field between themselves and their competitors, our devotion to small businesses is more impactful than ever. It’s with that in mind that we’d like to encourage you all to focus on two things this Thanksgiving weekend.
Small Business Saturday
First, we’d like to remind you all that this Saturday, November 26, 2016, is Small Business Saturday. This is a time for you to not only save on all of your best holiday shopping for the season but also to support the millions of men and women in local retail who are the backbone of our economy. The next thing we’d encourage you to remember this Thanksgiving is that, while we may not always agree on everything as a country or even a family, we are a nation founded on the most ambitious and admirable of all possible philosophies. And it is with that in mind that we recognize what we’re most grateful for; we were born in and remain piloted from the only place where a couple of techie guys can MacGyver their own electrical power grid one day and build it into an international company committed to helping entrepreneurs realize their own dreams. That’s a true privilege, and we’re grateful for you being a part of it.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at VirtualPBX!
