Oak Software
Oak is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one. From the start, we’ve always strived to do more, and to do important and meaningful things with the resources we have.  more
We chose the name Oak because of a few properties that are aspirational for our nascent company:
  • Oaks are very rare and productive. An Oak tree produces about 10 million acorns during its lifetime.
  • Oaks can live for 1000 years. They transcend time, like the best companies do.
  • Oaks are dense and strong, and so they're good for building things. The Vikings used oaks to construct their ships and boats.
  • Oak means “from a root.” in Greek. Like the root of a tree, Oak Software is the root company, with independent subsidiaries that develop their own brands.
  • Ancient civilizations used to eat acorns during famines. When the market is starving for great companies and products, we are here to deliver.
And there you have it. We are excited about…
  • Getting more ambitious projects done.
  • Empowering great entrepreneurs and companies to flourish.
  • Investing at the scale of the opportunities and resources we see.
  • Improving the transparency and oversight of what we’re doing.
  • Making each of our products better through greater focus.
  • And hopefully… as a result of all this, helping as many people as we can to reach their potential.
What could be better? No wonder we are excited to get to work with everyone in the Oak team.
