The Journey is the Event

For Nexthon III, we decided to take the experience on a journey.
A journey that follows mass disruption on the move, from giving back to those in need to the launch of our new disruptive capabilities and hero product, Miles Card, plus a new open access platform for forward-thinking businesses.

In the process we did a major overhaul to our site, along with a shiny new look for the novae brand.

Let’s take you through our journey.

Stop 1

Miles for Mercy

Everything starts with a purpose, and ours led us all the way to helping those in need. For every mile our users redeem, we’ll donate another one to our charity of choice, Mercy Ships, the world’s largest charitable hospital ship, offering free life-changing surgeries to those with little or no access to healthcare in Sub-Saharan Africa.

This came to fruition thanks to our new Miles Card, which was recently hand-delivered to our fellow partners across the Americas and Europe.

On a world tour with Miles

We used Miles Card on several contactless (NFC) transactions, for example, at London metro terminals. We purchased goods using global currencies including US dollars, Euros, Pounds and AED. We even went to the middle of the desert and purchased gas using the physical version of the Miles Card.

And guess what? We succeeded. One transaction at a time. How’s that for a solid proof of concept?

Even more disruption in 2020

Our immediate business focus will be around the disruption of digital banking, including debit cards and cash-in/cash-out capabilities.

Moving forward, we’ll be disrupting the Generation Z, comprised of active travelers and Gig entrepreneurs in the US, by offering a full-stack financial solution. By means of this global effort, novae will raise its proprietary user experience to become the neo-bank of choice for Gen Zers.
