Shane Gianino started his first business at age 21. It was a business-to-business lead generation firm. The entrepreneurial bug never left because he has started a new company called Qstride.
The business intelligence and analytics firm sells software that integrates with other firm's IT systems via things like mobile applications. This technology enables the users to leverage greater analytic insight that helps them make decisions faster and more effectively.
The concept has quickly found its footing. Qstride
has grown to 15 people since it launched in April and its still growing.
"Things are taking off," Gianino says. "We're in an aggressive growth mode right now."
The Troy-based firm is still self-funded and has taken on new clients in the retail, advertising, consumer goods and manufacturing sectors.
