First thing is first… you may be asking yourself how the heck do you say our name. It’s pronounced either kay-lus or see-loos Minds, both are acceptable.
Our name stems from the Latin word for sky. Since the founder Sultan and Anthony both believe the sky is the limit when it comes to technology, it just felt right. We like to say “our minds our in the clouds…” which in the classic idiom would imply that we’re unaware of what is happening around us, because we’re too focused on our own ideas.

After, what seemed like, countless hours of research Anthony came to the conclusion… “No one has done this, because no none would be crazy enough to try”.
Sultan and Anthony spent roughly 40 hours in conference calls over the next few days comparing notes and giving life to the FlowQL idea beyond the scope either of them had initially thought for.
Even with a sound idea, they would still need to bring it to market. Enter, Aaron Beauregard. Between the business savvy and pragmatic viewpoints Aaron brings to the table and the next-generation mindset Sultan and Anthony are often fond of…
