42 Story

We have been asked multiple times whether the company’s name is Forty2 or Forty².

Here is the full story…The name of the company is Forty2 (42). Some might have guessed that it comes from Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

📙 A story, where a super computer called “Deep Thought” had been built by its creators to give the answer to the "Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything", which, after eons of calculations, was given simply as "42".

However, the original name does not come from the book – well, indirectly. Our Founder and CEO had a professor at university – a genius. He loved mathematics and had a very intuitive way to teach his students the world of numbers. As exams were getting closer, he asked his students to come to the campus and to bring all their materials with them.

The objective was: to do math exercises all night long under his guidance with no time pressure. And by the end of the night, he will reveal the results of the exam

Which Math teacher would do that?

Same as the Supercomputer, that asked the people to gather at that day when it finishes the calculation to answer the “Ultimate Question of Life”, so did the professor.

Now, imagine you are sitting in that exam, and you have a full page of numbers. Reaching the last step, you type in your calculator the final formula - it shows the result: 0.42 🎯

🗝 You did it right! And you know you will pass the exam.

4️2️ - When founding Forty2, we have been looking for a name that combines letters and numbers. There could be no better solution to our requirements.

❔ At the end of the day, we all know the solution and “what” we want, the main question is “how” do we get there… and that is the reason “why” Forty2.All our clients, friends and partners know what they want – Forty2 is the solution “how to intuitively get there”.

🌟 We help you in finding the right solution as an innovation driven company.
