The Origin of Our Name

palette

The name Knowledge Palette arose from our desire to become a place (palette) where existing knowledge and technology (knowledge) can be mixed to create innovative concepts, or colors.

Throughout history, humankind has continued to learn from, apply, and further the wisdom of those who came before in the pursuit of a happier world. This can be identified with that of a painter painting by mixing a lot of colors (knowledge and technology) to complete work of art (happiness).

Through our work, our goal at Knowledge Palette, Inc. is to complete more such paintings, putting more smiles on more faces around the world.
