There are 2 key ideas behind Vectr.
The first is that genuine curiosity and asking questions is vital to every area in our lives, particularly in today’s world of increasing polarization and rapid change. We start out as children that are naturally curious about the world. But as we matriculate through the school system, to college, and ultimately into the workforce, conventional wisdom suggests that you’re supposed to know more and ask less. However, it is our belief that maintaining our inborn inquisitive nature is one of, if not THE, most important factors to building a world that we all want to live in.
Second, we all exist as a part of many networks. Schools, companies, local communities, clubs, sports teams, families, and many more. And our ability to tap into those networks is vital to making progress, both as individuals and collectively. I believe it was Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn and PayPal, that said “your network is your net worth.” And I don’t think he was talking about money. Instead, I think he was saying that those that can best tap into their networks have the best chance of making an impact and achieving their goals, whatever those goals might be.
So these two things together are what Vectr is all about. We want to inspire and empower people to ask questions. And we want those questions to receive a new and human response from those that are best suited to answer.
