Etale, Inc., derives its name from the mathematical concept of étale morphism and cohomology. Étale is an algebraic analogue of the topological concept of “covering space”, a critical concept for translating local concepts to global concepts. For us, etale captures the essence of the idea of “motives” in mathematics the underlying unity of structures found in wildly different domains.
