The name KARENT is derived from an American futurologist, Alvin Toffler.

Nowadays, it is much easier for individual creators to make public their work and gain recognition by posting them on the internet. This has been making a far-reaching impact on economy and changing our values. Surprisingly, Alvin Toffler already predicted such changes in 1980s, and in his book "The Third Wave", he coined a new term "prosumer" and described that the role of producers and consumers would begin to blur and merge.

He had a daughter, who supported his works.
Sadly, she died at young age before seeing a world of "The Third Wave".

Because we have been greatly impressed and inspired by his books, to honor Alvin Toffler, and also as a symbol of coming future, we named KARENT after his daughter, Karen Toffler.
