Pyramid Engineering was founded by the four partners. In 2000 it was incorporated as a professional corporation. The company was operated as a part time enterprise, building its initial client base. In October 2002, full time operation was started on a progressive schedule, until all of the partners were full time in May 2003.
In keeping with the company philosophy of avoiding the use of large start-up debt, the goal was to start-up as inexpensively as possible. This is in line with industry figures that show that engineering and consulting start-ups are ideal entrepreneurial opportunities with low start-up costs.
Total start-up expense was financed from accounts received from the 1999 through 2002 revenues. No salaries or payments to the partners were made during this initial start-up period.
Full time operation was started with existing revenues and accounts receivable of over $60,000. This was coupled with an initial SBA line of credit loan of $50,000 to cover the day to day operation and salary expense. Accounts receivable are billed monthly and usually paid net 60 days.
Pyramid Engineering, P.C. was created as a professional corporation chartered in Pennsylvania. The company is privately owned by the four founding partners.
