Participants reflected on the impact Scalerator has had on their growth since completing the program in this short video.  Rich Gent, Co-owner of Gent Machine said, “The Scalerator program has been huge for us, we learned so much in the last six months. It’s helped us change our culture, helped us hire the right people, and helped us increase our sales.”

Since beginning the Scalerator NEO program in April of 2019, Julie Brandle, President/Founder of Metis Construction reported her company experienced revenue growth and hired six new employees.

Upon completing the six-month program, Simon Melikian, President & CEO of Recognition Robotics, shared that his company has experienced a 15-20% increase in revenue. He and his team learned critical aspects of how to really run the business as a business and recommends Scalerator for every business that wants to grow.
