Why we love the ‘Pingouin’?

Well, so many people ask us where the name 'Pingouin' originates from? It has all started in June 2011, prior his start-up, the founder went on a holiday trip to Dubai and went on an adventure to 'Ski Dubai': he has encountered and interacted with the penguin on ice. After his trip, he becomes very curious about this flightless bird and his curiosity has led him to do research, and he has discovered the following amazing facts:

They're sharp | They're resilient | They're meticulous | They are mysterious | They're self-conscious | They're highly Intelligent | They're fearless of predators | They're extremely affectionate | They're very collaborative in colonies | They're master at navigating and hunting.

The founder believed that those traits are the conditions to be outstanding in the business world and he has chosen to brand his startup this name. It is not a mistake or random, but our actual team is an analogy of the real Penguin.
