LABUR CEO and Co-Founder, Darrin Lang, was recently featured in an article by the BostonVoyager on what it's been like to start and run a business in Boston.
Here's an excerpt:
Thanks for sharing your story with us Darrin. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
My business partner Seth Burr and I had an inclination to capitalize on putting the human back in human capital. We both had come up in a large, publicly traded, global staff augmentation firm and we saw an opportunity to create a business that was based on white glove service and lifelong relationships. We understood at a fundamental level, that this type of business needed to feel more like a relationship and less like a transaction.
We started out very humbly in home offices and have since expanded into a multi-million dollar company with headquarters in downtown Boston. But for us, it is still all about the people we get to do work with every day. That’s our number one focus – it always has been and it always will be. Relationships to us come first.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Building LABUR has come with a lot of sleepless nights. And relationships aren’t made in a day, they take time, so it has been a slow but deliberate climb.
