Our Company name is inspired by a legend in Greek Mythology which relates a tale which is thought to be the origin of the term 'mentoring'.
Ithaka is an island in the Ionian Sea in Greece and the legendary home of King Odysseus, ruler of Cephalonia. Homer's Odyssey relates how Odysseus left his island and his son Telemachus, in the care of a trusted friend, Mentor, when he departed for the 10 year long Trojan War.
