The meaning behind our name and logo

We took the name 'SQUEEZE' as a sign of our dedication to using unutilized resources to create a world that is squeezed full of value. Our logo is made up of five lines, with each line growing thicker and darker with fewer gaps between them going from left to right. This transformation from pale, weak, and empty to bold, strong, and full is symbolic of the process of creating a society squeezed full of value.
