What is the etymology of Tellusant? It derives from Tellus and Quantitative.
Tellus means Earth in Latin. We chose it because of the often global scope of our work for multinational companies.
Quant because when we codify strategies on the platform, quantitative information / knowledge is central to the planning process. Quantification through statistical methods and machine learning is the heart of our company. Translating the numbers into meaningful messages for the CEO and the C-suite is our soul.
As secondary -ant attributes we thought of Relevant and Elegant.
Relevant because we build solutions that are relevant to management users, rather than us having a “product out” mindset.
Elegant because the user interface has to be simple and appealing.
Not intended was the direct link to proto-indo-european *telh₂- which means “to endure”–which is central to any startup.
Nor was the connection to Telluride, Colorado intended. But we might as well hold our first customer conference there.
