Eos is one of the great American success stories. This corporation's beginnings are humble, sprouted from a seed nurtured in Mythic Wood, Oregon. That seed was a young lady named Cassidy Soldahl. While attending college at Oregon State University, Cassidy developed a revolutionary new technology for transferring data online using what she called a predictive transfer protocol.
Shortly after graduating in 2010, Cassidy demonstrated her program in a file-sharing app called Aurora. Before long, Aurora expanding from file-sharing to video chat and live-streaming. With the assistance of her college friends, Kyle Rankin and Jen Yeun, she was able to turn Aurora into a business. As the clients poured in, Yeun advised Cassidy to branch out and grow the company. She took that advice, but in an unexpected direction.
From Aurora to Eos
When Aurora exploded in popularity, Cassidy was back in her beloved home in Mythic Wood. So when she realized that she needed to grow to survive, she decided to do so in the place that had molded her into the person she had become. Starting in her parents' garage, she established the first company headquarters of the newly dubbed Eos. It was there that she manufactured the prototype routers that would take advantage of her predictive transfer protocol.
Within six months, she had created fifty new jobs in Mythic Wood, just putting together the routers to meet the increasing demand. A year later, in 2012, the newly constructed Eos Corporate Headquarters was opened for business in the sleepy little coastal town. Suddenly, Mythic Wood became the central hub of the fastest Internet service in the United States.
A New Dawn
Eos didn't stop there. The rapidly growing company was diversifying quickly, with new offices and labs opening up all over the country. But Cassidy Soldahl insisted that her company remain headquartered in her hometown. She even went as far as having high-speed data lines installed throughout the town and providing free Internet access via Eos's service, EosNet. Even as things changed in the town, Cassidy was always careful not to disrupt the pleasant, semi-rural lifestyle that Mythic Woodans were accustomed to.
She was cheered on when she put together the trust that would turn Mythic Woods' struggling school system around, creating vibrant new programs for art, music, and especially technology education.
Few found reason to complain when she devoted millions of dollars to renovating the town's tiny hospital into an ultra-modern, state-of-the-art medical complex — complete with an advanced research wing used by Eos itself in its development of robotic prosthetics and other medical technologies.
Eos does have its detractors. Many of those living in Haven are ideologically inclined to resist corporate influence of any kind. Some have difficulty believing that any organization of such size and wealth can possibly be benign. But to most residents of Mythic Wood, Eos is a blessing, and Cassidy Soldahl is an angel.
