“Bandits”?

We were looking for a term that defines each of us individually, and as a team, in terms of our passion and the kind of work we do. While searching for "The one word" that defines our vision and mission, we stumbled upon Bandit , amongst other words, a negative term in its true context, but the definition struck a chord as it had three important characteristics that aligned with our thoughts and Payatu values.
