at the beginning of the month, we celebrated our sixth anniversary. So it was time for a family portrait. Meanwhile, we’ve been busy with new & old clients, writing a whitepaper and thinking about the next six years (and beyond).
What guides us, is a mission that now, for the first time, we feel comfortable to articulate:
Giving people agency in the digital age.
That is what has been guiding us more and more over the last months and years. So many people are overwhelmed by the growing complexity and perpetual change. They feel exposed and paralyzed. Everything we do should help people to understand the new normal a bit better and restore a sense of leverage.
To understand a thing is to gain the power to change it.
