rarebrainOS was created by entrepreneur Gower Idrees, who in the mid-90s became determined to design a methodology that allowed entrepreneurs more freedom by building a self-sustaining company.
Along the way his wife, Alyson, described his single-minded pursuit as a rare brain obsession. From that diagnosis, rarebrain was launched.
Now small businesses impacted by the coronavirus looking to thrive in this black swan environment can access the rarebrain Operating System® more easily than ever.
