The origin of 8ing’s company name

EIGHTING, our company name, is a coined word from “8” and “-ing.”
The “8” comes from the number eight in nanakorobi yaoki*, which means to strive to achieve your dreams without fear of failure, while the “-ing” represents our desire to keep pushing forward to reach a big goal without stopping.
*Nanakorobi yaoki: A Japanese proverb meaning to fall down seven times and get up eight times. In other words, to keep getting back up and persevering no matter how many times you fail.
