In picking our name we took inspiration from the great Renaissance astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus. Informed by careful observation of planetary motion, Copernicus postulated that the earth revolves around the sun and not the other way around.
The Copernican model of the universe was both radically new and beautifully simple.
In everything that we do we aspire to these ideas and try to live up to our namesake's most famous theory by building tools that are bold and new but also simple and intuitive.
