The mission of the Owler Explorers is to explore and deliver competitive intelligence to millions of companies around the world.
It’s a bird, it’s a plane… wait, it’s a bird. G-owl-ileo spends his days and nights searching. He searches for information, companies, leads and more. Perhaps Herbert Quiggley can give him some direction on where to look? If you’re searching for something on Owler.com, Gowlileo can help you out.
Introducing Selfie, the technology addicted nightowl that spent more time playing video games and posting updates than flying.

A bit of an obsessive personality, he loves to count his money (or yours) and when he’s done he simply starts counting over again. Will always pick up coins (even pennies) off the ground, even in disgusting places. Once built the world’s largest towering stack of coins, but it was knocked over by the mischievous Triplets before it could be certified as a world record. Always wants to play Monopoly but only if he can be the banker. Favorite marker is the top hat. He’s always up-to-date on the numbers, so is the go-to owl for accurate Revenue and financial information!
Smaller, faster and equipped with higher pitched voices than their brethren, the minion triplets have a knack for counting and re-counting everyone every place they go. “23!” “25!” “28!” “Someone’s late!” you can hear them all exclaim in unison. These pesky li’l minions are always the first to know that an employee is late, hired, fired, missing or present!
The Officer loves putting things in their rightful place, so naturally his favorite game is Tetris. When he landed in the busy streets of Coimbatore he knew his Tetris skills could finally come in handy – by organizing traffic, of course! He spends his days ordering everyone around and making sure the traffic runs smoothly. Each night he compiles detailed traffic reports in order to maximize the efficiency of his roads. He still makes time for a few games of Tetris each week, to stay sharp. If you’re looking for a traffic report for your website or blog, the Officer can pull it instantly from his color-coded filing cabinet.
Acqui is one of those guys that just seems to have luck dripping from his pores. No matter what he tries to do, things just come easily. Acqui is also a product of the hippie era — Acqui was born to two recovering hippies who relocated to Ojai and named their son after a Hawaiian drinking ritual. Acqui has never had a conventional life. Acqui growing up so close to LA and great surfing waters began surfing at a young age. He soon began thinking about how he could improve the sport and discovered that rubbing certain types of wax on his board made him go faster and stay on better. Acqui then started a surf wax company. Within several years the company had taken off as the biggest provider of surf wax. Acqui was a fast mad big-wig at this point, hanging out with the world’s biggest CEOs. A petroleum company bought Acqui’s company 5 years later. Acqui’s close friend Richard Branson then invited him to go to his island and install a surfing culture there amoung his staff (Branson thought they needed to be more chilled out). In the midst of training Branson’s island-crew how to surf, a shark jumped out of the water, aiming to take a massive bite of his head. But again, because of Acqui’s Hawaiian-born luck, his scull turned out to be too hard, even for a shark’s jaw to crack. But, to this day, he walks around with a shark biting his head.
Uncle Moneybags arrives home exhausted after another long day. He hangs up his boots and waders and towels off his damp feathers. Those pesky kids kept splashing him again today! But the reward was worth it, and he overturns his collecting bucket on the ground to pour out a healthy pile of pennies, nickels and quarters – loot from another day cleaning change out of fountains. Ever wonder where all that money thrown into fountains and wishing wells goes? Well, Uncle Moneybags Owl collects that from around the world, and he’s made quite a bundle of money doing so. Everything he collects goes right into a piggybank, and every piggybank goes into a vault, and he’s on his 100th valut, so he’s done quite well indeed! With so much loot, he’s always on the lookout for investments, so he keeps close track of what’s happening out there. No, he doesn’t want to fund your Uber for X idea, though.
With map in hand, Herbert Quiggley, can usually be seen directing traffic with his wings and feet at the same time. And if you can get a word in between his bouts of latitude and longitude, H.Q., as his friends call him, will tell you where everything and anything is at all times!!
Ron Burgundowl wasn’t born a star. From his humble beginnings as a weather bird, Burgundowl hustled his way to the top by chasing every special report he could get his talons on. He now enjoys fined aged mice and whiskeys. When you’re looking for the most reliable, real-time business news, look no further than Ron Burgundowl.
The King is one of those guys that cares a lot about status. He cares not just about the status of your company, but also of your position. He also notices if your wearing Ferragamos or Cole Haans — and if you’re wearing Cole Haans he will remember. He’s obsessive about status — he’s so obsessive you’d think he must keep a ledger of the details — but really he’s just got a mind for it because to him there’s nothing more important than status.
