  • Make decisions based on facts and data

    We leverage data to inform (or correct) our intuition and aren't afraid to re-think ideas/ assumptions when presented with new data. We identify root causes and go beyond treating symptoms.

  • We are bar-raisers

  • We are Fast

    "Good and fast" is 10x better than "perfect and slow". We do not drown ourselves in processes
