K2 – the name has been evolved from Knowledge Kingdom: The larger goal and aspiration of the organisation in as much as it is the foundation of our activities. Because knowledge and its dissemination is critical to the success of all businesses across the globe, its the beginning and end of all communication, and information.
K2 is also a motif taken from the awe-inspiring mountain peaks in the Karakoram range in the Himalayas. The second highest peak in the world is far more treacherous and difficult to ascend than the Everest. And there-in lies our goal – To be second to none!
