Think differently is part of our character and what sets 2717 apart from the crowd.  The desire was to have a name that made people think or ask the question, “why?”

After looking up famous quotes and definitions to words, nothing was sticking.  However, the one characteristic commonly attributed was knowledge through debatable conversations.  The best ideas, strategies, and success throughout history came when people were not afraid to challenge traditional thinking

Over history, the change agents have been a result of smart people debating a specific topic.  The statement that resonated most with us in creating this business was one from The Bible, “As iron sharpens iron so too does one man sharpen another” — Proverbs 27:17.  It said everything about the character and mission of this new company.  

The mission was and is simple: to be that change agent for our customers by thinking differently through a process of debatable conversations, wherein everyone’s thoughts are heard and challenged.  This process will refine existing models and generate new models based in proven methods and statistical data. 

At 2717, we desire to stitch together those industries not typically stitched together, simplify complex issues, and elevate individuals to their highest potential.

As iron sharpens iron, so too does one man sharpen another.
— Proverbs 27:17
