it’s often said that the greatest feats of innovation happen in the greatest time of need.
six years ago, our leadership left our offices to wallow in what was next for c3/consulting. with a spark of inspiration—the engine was born.
We wanted a creative, collaborative, and comfortable space where teams could meet to get critical things done. Let’s face it, our typical day-to-day environments don’t usually encourage true breakthroughs.
how did the engine get its name?
Despite the constraints of the Great Depression, people found a way to create, innovate, and solve complex problems with big, audacious ideas.
A perfect example of 1930’s innovation is the development of the turbo jet engine.
The first patent for the turbo jet engine was applied for in 1930. If you’ve ever been in our space and seen the black sliding door in the lobby, you’ve seen our nod to the 1930’s above it. While the jet engine was one of many inventions of its time, its significance cannot be overstated. Giving people the ability to travel longer distances and more efficiently than ever before, its emergence forever changed the way people would interact, experience other cultures, and understand the world. engines convert fuel into energy; we convert human fuel into the energy necessary to deliver and sustain transformational change.
thus, the engine was born.
the engine—where teams come to make change happen.
