Koios—What does it mean?

Koios (pronounced Co-EE-us) was the Greek Titan god of “questioning intelligence.” He married Phoebe, the Moon Goddess, and their daughter, Leto, gave birth to Apollo.

There are few stories about Koios; his wife and grandson were both more famous. But, given the questioning nature of his intellect, it makes sense to consider him the God of Consultants.

Koios Associates takes the “questioning” aspect of intelligence seriously. When we analyze information we question the assumptions it is based on. We don’t accept, and we don’t provide, stock answers and pre-packaged solutions. We don’t assume that just because everyone else is doing something it is the right thing to do.view case studies
