Our Soocii Story
We believe people have a strong innate desire to bond with others and feel happy. Life is about sharing, building fun moments together, and living in the moment after all! So we named our brand after the Latin word socius, meaning partner, social and society. The o’s symbolize interconnected social circles while the i’s allude to people themselves, adding a human element to our brand.
We seek to redefine how people connect by developing tech that empowers, building a space for mobile gamers to connect with friends. Being a group of passionate mobile gamers ourselves, we hope to take mobile gaming and social interactions to the next level.
