In 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton had a goal: to be the first man to cross Antarctica from sea to sea. However, shortly after the expedition began, disaster struck. The ship, named the Endurance, was crushed by pack ice. Shackleton spent the next six months on a new goal: keeping his 28-man crew alive during their thousand-mile trek across the tundra to safety. Every man survived. It is this tale that kept CEO Hari Ravichandran motivated when he was down to 14 employees after the dotcom crash and founded Endurance International Group.
The truth was, we had an idea — to start a company that would get small businesses onto the Web quickly and cheaply. That company, Bizland, flourished quickly but just as quickly crashed when the bubble burst and a core group of 14 people pushed ahead to form what became Endurance International group.
Today as we are a public company traded on NASDAQ: EIGI, with over 2,500 employees and operations in North America, Brazil and Asia. Our commitment to both superior customer experience and reinvestment has led to our substantial growth. And now as we expand internationally, we are set to transform the way small businesses does business, all over the world.
