Our Philosophy

Your Side Projects are Our Passion

We are guided by our philosophical "Borromean Doctrine," while the name is pretty fancy, it's pretty simple. It shows how side projects relate to the usual things we relate to innovation and shows how those pieces of innovation relate to each other.  Lastly, we have nine simple statements that showcase what we mean.
