After spending years helping the largest companies in the world with digital transformation while at Apple, Visa, Turvo, and Modo, Nautical Founders Ryan Lee, Niklas Halusa, and James Throsby noticed a trend.
All of these enterprises were looking to build a marketplace, but they didn't have the technology or the expertise to do it. They were spending millions of dollars and years to get their marketplaces off the ground, and wasting valuable time and resources in the process.
The team decided to build an elegant multi-vendor platform that orchestrates the full lifecycle of marketplace transactions across the multitude of systems involved. This platform would make marketplace technology accessible to businesses of all stripes, from startups to enterprises.
