Building Bridges


JUST 28.
It means you can still trust.
Trust what?
The dream.
It was years ago and we were young.
There was no strategic plan, just a prayer.
It took a while.
Till we understood.

WHAT DO WE DO?
We build bridges:
From ignorance to knowledge.
From buyer to seller.
From data to insight.
Like that famous New Yorker cartoon,
We even bridged the Hudson, connected us all.

We are very lucky.
We think sometimes about the people who are stuck
In jobs they find boring.
When you build bridges, you never get bored.
We are always going new places.
Always seeing new things
Or old things new ways.

THEY SAY THE PAST IS PROLOGUE.
What a year to come:
Bridge across an Ocean
Bridge to the Consumer
Who knows where we shall go next?
After 28 years, we know this:
Wherever we go, we will go with our industry,
So we travel with friends.
No better way to spend a birthday.
