Democratizing Maritime Crewing
We are inspired by seafarers. It is they who move 90% of global trade, working tirelessly away from their homes and families. We want to help them secure the opportunities they deserve in a simple and fair way.
Our goal is to make it easy and transparent.
It all started on an evening in the maritime plaza in Manila in 2019.
Our founder overheard a discussion about the difficulty of finding a sponsor among seafarers. Greek-born, he knows of the arduous process seafarers go through, as well as the rigorous processes shipping companies go through, and he is committed to creating a better system. We are determined to bring greater transparency and efficiency through data and technology to the crewing process for the global maritime industry.
