Our Name

Our name is derived from the five key skills that make up the innovator’s DNA

A: Associate – The ability to successfully connect seemingly unrelated questions, problems or ideas from different fields

Q: Question – Innovators constantly ask questions that challenge common wisdom

O: Observe – Scrutinising common phenomena and act like anthropologists and social scientists to understand what drives customer behaviour

N: Network – Devoting time to collaborate and support a network of diverse individuals

E: Experiment – Actively construct interactive experiences to test and improve solutions

The name Aqone [ey-kohn] is also reminiscent of Acorn [ey-kawrn], the seed from which great oaks grow.
