By definition of the dictionary the word “angel” has several, versatile meanings. We picked two of them:
• formal: a person having qualities generally attributed to an angel, as beauty, purity or kindliness
• informal: a person who provides financial backing for some undertaking
Both explanations describe our angels perfectly – our shareholders are not only good looking but also kind and providing us with the financial backing to create this amazing company. All of them requested to stay in the background seeing their involvement as support for The Life in Motion Group and not to show off themselves. They love our industry, are seasoned professionals, and simply want to help growing a great idea. We think this is angel-like, don’t you agree? Hence we would like to use this opportunity to thank them from the deepest bottom of our hearts. You are our angels!
