The Origin of “Arete”

From the period of 500 BC to 200 BC, The Greeks enjoyed an unprecedented age of innovation in language, arts, literature, medicine and philosophy. There is no period in the history of the world where, on a per-capita basis, there was more intense innovation. Arête, known in Latin and English as virtue, was a pivotal value in ancient Greece that enabled higher order teamwork, intellectual interaction, and co-creativity to take place.

Arete Innovative Solutions, LLC takes its inspiration from this historic core value of the ancient Greeks to offer leadership insights and innovation for the additive manufacturing industry.
