Laszlo Bock’s startup is called Humu, an abbreviation of humuhumunukunukuapuaa, which is the Hawaiian spelling of a fish. However, there is no other information on the endeavor aside from a website, humuhr.com, which has the image of the fish surrounded by a black background and the phrase “Making work better through science, machine learning, and a little bit of love.”
“If we’re devoting most of our lives to work, that experience should be meaningful, impactful, productive,” Bock wrote on his LinkedIn page. “We should be constantly learning and growing, and surrounded by people who are doing the same. We all have good days and bad days, but what would work be like if every day were like our best days? Imagine what we could achieve.”
“That’s why Wayne Crosby and I have started humu,” Bock added. “Our mission is to make work better everywhere through science, machine learning, and a little bit of love.”
Bock late last year announced his plans to launch a startup, as previously reported by PHRM.
