​​Our Mission

Why Orka Solutions exists is as important as what we do. We are strong believers in and advocates for the entrepreneurial spirit. Our economy was founded on and fueled by the creation and growth of small businesses, entrepreneurs who took big risks to bring their ideas to market. At Orka, we exist to help these entrepreneurs reach the next level of success, whether they be a startup or a seasoned business. 

Our Values

Team: We're at our best when we're working with a strong, aligned team towards a common aspiration

Purpose: Whatever we do, it has to be meaningful. Life is too short to waste time

Execution: Without execution, a plan is just a dream. Without execution, we fail

Humility: ​Each of us brings strengths and weaknesses. As a team, we amplify our strengths and minimize weakness

Orca whales, commonly known as “killer whales” because of  their highly effective hunting capabilities, are among the most socially sophisticated and team-driven animals on earth. Orcas work together in cooperative communities called “pods”, using precise communications and synchronized behaviors to ensure their entire pods thrive.

What does this have to do with us? Our belief is for any team to thrive, communication, cooperation and alignment around shared values and goals are critical. We embrace the model these amazing animals provide, as trust, communication, and alignment are key to driving our and our client’s success. Plus, to be honest, they're just really cool.
