Why a Penguin?
Pymwymic chose the Penguin as a logo way back in 1996, before both Disney and documentaries discovered this rare bird. Founder Frank van Beuningen is an ocean sailor with a deep love of southern Patagonia and Antartica, first visiting the extreme south in 1987. He saw incredible beautiful clean landscapes, and saw how the penguins were a cooperative society, dependent on working together to hatch the next generation.
So in 1995, when Frank sold his multinational company and decided to Put His Money Where His Mouth Is in the first social venture capital fund in Europe (then, ‘impact’ was called ‘Triple P’ for Profit/Planet/People) – Frank remembered the penguin.
Our Pymwymic Penguin has grown and adapted with the times. With the colors of earth and sky blended, it looks towards the future.
