More about this metric

Years Since Founding is used to measure the number of years a company has been in business. Although this metric does not directly impact your business, it can impact your brand. Generally, a company that has been in business for longer can appear to be more trustworthy and reputable, due to the idea that expertise takes time to develop. This is especially true in industries such as insurance, banking, and consumer products where well-known names can hold the advantage of appearing low risk. However, it is important to keep track of industry trends and to always stay relevant in the current market to truly reap the benefits of being an established brand.
