Founders

The Cognitive Ink difference: By working in a different context from the majority of people in our field we make distinct and unique connections that others often can’t. We integrate and cross-pollinate different ideas. We avoid rigid thinking and expectations. We integrate ideas from seemingly dissimilar fields to create unique solutions.
