Missio + Strat = Missiostrat

Missio is a Latin word. Its English equivalent is 'mission.' STRAT is an abbreviation used to denote 'strategic.' In short, the first word in our company's name is a combination of these two words (missio and strat). When linked together, this newest business portmanteau, 'MissioStrat', is best described by our global consulting company's primary goal:
