What’s in a name?
First, the name: Orange Octopus. The octopus is one of the smartest animals. Physically the octopus is also distinct. An octopus has three hearts, nine brains, eight arms and blue blood!
We see clear similarities between businesses and octopuses.
The three hearts stand for stamina or endurance. Starting a business is often hard and you need to endure and continue where others give up. Start-ups go through multiple life stages before they can bloom.
The nine brains and eight arms stand for multidisciplinary. A founder needs to skillful, resourceful and possess knowledge about various of topics. A founder needs to know about the product or service the start-up is offering. Besides he or she needs knowledge on legal, finance, design and marketing topics. On top of that, a founder should have social skills for hiring staff, making deals, convincing and selling, leading and motivating teams, and have a vision while being detail oriented.
Orange stands for energy combined with fun and adventure. Well that is what entrepreneurship is about.
