In June 1976, two 26 year old entrepreneurs, Serge Godin and André Imbeau, started CGI in the basement of Serge's home. They had one client, one phone and, most importantly, a lot of ambition. By the end of our first year, CGI had generated $138,000 in revenue. From that point on, our revenue and size increased consistently year after year. Today, there are 70,000 in hundreds of locations worldwide.
