SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ian Luebbers founded his first business at age 20 using funds generated from his computational astrophysics research. Twelve months after first sinking his teeth into business he had founded four thriving businesses and left his studies at Oxford University.
Dave Burns took his first sales job out of college while barely sober after years of drug addiction. Within 5 months he became the top-performing event sales director of a 12 million dollar company, and by age 24 had founded five of his own businesses.
The two met through a mutual connection and almost immediately decided to found a company together.
"I increased a well-established company's lead conversion rate by 640% in one month," says Burns. "When the CEO found out how old I was she said 'there's another kid I know who gets those kind of insane results. His name is Ian Luebbers.'"
Within two weeks of meeting they had assembled a team, including top-tier subcontractors and an advisory board of industry experts, and signed the paperwork to create Singularity.
Singularity is a growth accelerator. It helps ambitious companies feeling stretched in every direction to achieve laser focus and runaway growth through explosive marketing and sales strategies, world-class systems and a suite of custom tailored services.
Working with clients like one of the world's premier entrepreneur networking event producers, a revolutionary IT agency challenging the IBM paradigm, and a software company aiming to help 1 billion people reach their peak potential, Singularity breaks the mold of traditional consulting firms. They throw convention out the window and build radically innovative solutions from first principles.
"Often what's worked to get companies to the $5 or $10 million dollar mark is exactly what's stopping them from growing exponentially," says Burns. "Most companies we talk to feel stretched in every direction at once, doing the 20 things everyone else is doing to scrape by with marginal growth. That's an agonizing place to be stuck when you have a great product that could be dominating the market."
"The crippling problem is that companies lock into notions about how things are done," says Luebbers. "Today's world changes so rapidly that experts with decades of industry experience are left gasping in the dust if they aren't willing to break convention in order to grow."
With word-of-mouth referrals spreading rapidly due to the founders' track records, Singularity currently only accepts a small portion of the clients that apply to work with them. "In the short term we're keeping our client roster small to ensure the amazing results we're known for delivering."
The company continues recruiting top talent from around the world while rigorously maintaining the remarkability of their services as they expand. "We want every single one of our clients to be blown away by what we do," says Luebbers. "Anything less than that we see as a failure."
