Meet the team

We want the owl to negotiate later life. A brand synonymous with relevant and engaging information. A brand that will help them find the answers to life's questions and to reach important decisions.

Our founders have created an online community of websites, each with a different content strategy, to offer something for everyone. Our site visitors can be as passive or active as they wish. They can mix with like-minded people, or they can keep themselves to themselves. They can post their own vociferous opinions, or they can keep their counsel and silently agree or disagree with those of others.

Most of all, they feel they belong to something. Owl offers them empathy and understanding as they grow older and wiser.
