  • We...

    • Believe in Freedom & Responsibility.
    • Disrupt the Status Quo.
    • Are unreasonably selective about Our Colleagues.
    • Believe in Work plus Life.
    • Are a perpetual Work In Progress.
  • Ideas...

    • Stay curious and rapidly challenge prevailing
      assumptions with new ideas.
    • Keep us nimble by finding practical solutions
      to hard problems.
  • So what we do:

    Don’t hire to delegate but to elevate.

    elevate (smarter people you can learn from)
  • And we ask our members:
