Our Values

Ambition: we aim big, because otherwise, where is the fun?

Progress: we care more about the grit, the steep learning curve, the resilience and creativity muscles, than the current status or where you come from.

Humble confidence: we know our strengths and always strive for excellence, but we also know there’s so much we don’t know yet

Pay it forward: we’ve all started somewhere, people gave us a hand when we needed one, we don’t forget this, and reinforce this positive cycle

Not taking ourselves too seriously: we are ambitious, restless learners and hustlers, but at the end of the day, our health (physical and mental), and our loved ones are what matter the most.
