METIQ name

 

The name is a combination of three important words: METIS + ETIQ + IQ: smart, ethical and intelligent.

Metis

Metis refers to wisdom, skills, or craft. Metis in mythology had become the mother of wisdom and deep thought. Metis name originally connoted “magical cunning” and was as easily equated with the trickster powers of Prometheus as with the “royal metis” of Zeus. The Stoic commentators allegorised Metis as the embodiment of “prudence”, “wisdom” or “wise counsel”, in which form she was inherited by the Renaissance.
It had been prophesied that Metis would bear extremely powerful children which reflects our goal of creating solid and powerful solutions.
Further, in 1998 book Seeing Like a State, the author James C. Scott used “metis” to describe the knowhow, experience and wisdom that people acquire in building expertise, as a key contributor to success in society that is not accounted for by the high modernist approach to central administration.

ETIQ

ETIQ reflects our goal of a highly ethical approach with a straightforward approach and ultimately achieving full trust of our clients and the people that work for us.

IQ

IQ mirrors our objective to create intelligent, unique and complex solutions.
