Why Archimedes?
The Greek mathematician, engineer and intellect, Archimedes, was one of the most important minds in ancient history. He is reported to have made the statement that with a sufficiently long lever and fulcrum of sufficient strength he could lift the world. In paraphrasing the words of Archimedes, we came up with "if I could find my place to stand, I could move the world"  finally shortening it to "Find Your Place To Stand".
