Why "Puffin"?

When people see Puffins, they often mistake them as Penguins, which are the more commonly known bird species. However, both species are totally different. Penguins can’t fly, but Puffins can. Penguins can’t burrow underground, but Puffins do. For us, we’re willing to fly high, burrow deep, swim fast and do whatever it takes to build ideas and companies to change the world. Our team is dynamic and hungry to change the world. We aren’t afraid to make mistakes and we go overboard at times. We may look just like any other Penguin, but we know we are different inside.

Puffin’s small mouths could still enable them to stuff a record-setting 62 fish inside its beak at once.. Yes, we’re on a mission to build more game-changing businesses than we can even imagine. Biting off more than we can chew? Well, we choose to chew more and faster, rather than bite less.

Puffins create burrows in rocky cliffs. Their parents return to look after their young in the same burrow year after year. Both the parents take turn in incubating the egg. The chick stays in the burrow until it is ready to fly. Our businesses are conceptualized and built with us. We nurture them until they are able to fly independently. And our businesses know there’s always a home for them.
