BOSTON, Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- After making its debut to wide acclaim at HR Tech, sixQ, the company behind the world's first QuestionScience® assessment platform, today announced a $1 million funding round to accelerate sales, marketing and engineering efforts. In addition, the company has relocated its headquarters to downtown Boston at 180 Lincoln St., near the city's renowned Innovation District.
sixQ also announced two key additions to the firm's management team. Dave Swindell, a veteran of the Boston tech scene, including j2 Global, Marathon Technologies and Relicore, will join as Chief Technology Officer. Dave will lead the development of sixQ's groundbreaking cloud-based QuestionScience® assessment platform. Joining Dave on the management team is Larry Epstein, who'll serve as Chief Operating Officer. Larry comes to sixQ with a background in operations management, software sales and development, most recently as co-founder of SiteSpect and prior to that, GSX Solutions, IBM, and Lotus Development. Larry will run day-to-day back-office operations of sixQ.
"With a $1 million angel investment, a new headquarters and two new high-profile management team members in Larry and Dave, we couldn't be more thrilled about the progress we've made in such a short time," said Eric Anderson, sixQ President and co-founder. "Since announcing the formation of sixQ and releasing the world's first QuestionScience® assessment platform in October at HR Tech, we have seen an amazing response from companies who want a systematic approach to employee assessments formed in science with real-time analytics and reporting that hasn't existed."
The sixQ innovation is simple, and like most disruptive innovations, was hiding in plain sight—the entire assessment lifecycle should be designed to ask and answer six question-types. That's it. sixQ is the world's first QuestionScience® assessment platform that asks and answers the six question-types to connect people with the answers for competitive advantage. Whether it's competencies, culture, engagement, a sales program, or any other management framework, sixQ enables you to understand the strategy (what, why) and implementation (how) in context (when, where), while providing insights to the right people (who). We work with enterprises to optimize their talent development and leading consulting firms to productize their intellectual capital. sixQ—from questions to answers. Learn more at sixQsoftware.com.
