WHY 1777?

1777 was the start-up year of the most enduring and valuable brand in history — The United States of America.

As a START-UP year, 1777 was particularly difficult.  The 13 colonies were underfunded, under attack, and using only rudimentary tools. However, their keen spirit of entrepreurship kept the fight going. With INGENUITY, invention, and the power of diversity, the Founding Father’s common committment to success would benefit generations to come.

The 1777 Company is named in honor of the amazing AMERICAN SPIRIT our Founders embraced while overcoming adversity “beyond our imagination.”

OLD SCHOOL THOUGHTS

“YOU will find the key to success under the ALARM CLOCK”

“WELL DONE is better than well said”

“NEVER mistake motion for action”
