About Us

We are on a mission to accelerate the digital revolution of marketplaces. We believe we can change the way the world trades.

Our story

We are a cutting-edge technology company with a decade of experience in combining product management, business analysis, marketplace design, development, and data science. Based in London and Malaga, with 70+ employees, we support clients from all over the world, including Christie's, CarNext, Lloyd's of London, Hilco IPv4 Global, and Global Dairy Trade.

Our name comes from the latin words of "nova" and "fori", which represents our commitment to developing new digital markets.

Our brand identity is based on our mountain themed logo, which symbolises the expedition we undertake with our clients.
In this context they are the explorers, climbing towards their business success, and we are the guides, with them every step of the way, making their journey achievable. We are not just the “muscle” behind any expedition - carrying extra gear – we are also expert navigators.

Our technology supports B2B and B2C clients in Europe, North America and Asia, with over $11 billion GMV transacted through our platforms since inception.
