The Oceans 11 Model

 

Oceans 11 is a movie about a group of dynamic, clever criminals coming together to pull off an elaborate heist. But when you take step back and really consider it, it was a group of people with a variety of skill sets working together to achieve a common goal.  

Torq labs was founded on the principle of working together towards a common goal. Our goal just happens to be helping people stay active by reducing the number of ACL injuries...instead of robbing a casino.
