Black Line’s Future
Black Line’s Moonshot is all about our future and what we know we can achieve. We borrowed the term “moonshot” from a speech on space exploration presented by President John Kennedy in 1961. The key to Kennedy’s vision was setting clear, specific goals, with a grand purpose and timeline. His speech and vision was inspirational and gave the nation purpose and direction.
We at Black Line admire the teamwork, dedication, and hard work that went into the collective effort to achieve the first moon landing – so much, in fact that we adopted our own Moonshot – one that will propel Black Line into its future. Is it a lofty goal? Sure. But things worth the effort don’t come easy.
Black Line has 3 primary goals that comprise our Moonshot:
- Black Line to be recognized by its employees as the best place to work
- Black Line to be the Gold Standard in the SMB market
- Black Line to expand into underserved markets as a recognized brand for technology services
These Moonshot goals drive our culture and provide us with a foundation to rely upon throughout our day-to-day and long-term planning.
