Qvest: What's in a name?

We are Qvest.

Qvest, pronounced 'quest', is named for exactly that: a journey with a purpose. Imagine the Quest for the Holy Grail. In that quest, and in most quests, a collection of individuals are driven to reach a goal.

There are unknown challenges, and individual skills and perspectives are revealed along the way. While there might be a leader on the quest, all members of the journey are responsible for the accomplishments and goals reached. Through the process of a quest, individuals are impacted and changed for the better.

This may all make sense, but you may still be wondering, why the weird spelling of Qvest? Qvest is spelled with a 'v' instead of the 'u' as a nod to ancient Rome, where a Qvestio was a location dedicated to exchanging questions and answers about important topics (hint hint

We put the Qvest in questions

Why? Because questions power our curiosity and connect us with other humans. 

We want people to ask more questions

Why? Because when human beings pose a question, they take a position on what's important, and what's not.

We want to democratize the power of questions

Why? Because when many people ask questions, many experiences and perspectives on what's important are activated and acknowledged.

We build tech that takes people on a quest

Why? Because when people with different experiences and perspectives commit to the same purpose there is no limits to what they can achieve.
