We look for solutions and not excuses. We aim to be better.

All the goals we have listed below would not be complete if there hadn’t been a unifying philosophy behind them. Simply ‘being better’ sounds subjective and abstract, therefore we will briefly define what this concept means for us:

  • Without ego – We work with a like-minded collective of people, not followers. We use “We”, not “I”.
  • We want to be better than yesterday every single day.
  • We believe in the following problem-solving methodology: Problem → Study → Validation → Solution
