Once upon a time, the Portuguese wished to discover a new world, unafraid of what they could find across the seas. In order to fulfil this desire, they invented and projected a unique type of ship called “nau” (carrack). This innovation allowed Portugal to sail away from the coast and navigate into the unknown. This deed echoed from the 15th century until our days, reminding us of our ancestor’s bravery and determination.

Now, in the 21st century, Nau21 invokes the same spirit regarding the smart use of technology. By working as an innovation lab, we, too, are focused on delivering innovation to our industries, including the Financial and Insurance industries, discovering new ways and solutions to boost businesses, and researching disrupting methods to apply top-notch Blockchain technology. We aim to evolve traditional processes, revolutionising and leveraging companies to their full potential.
