2023 was a year of intense product development, transformational partnerships and exciting recognitions. All thanks to our talented Neoke team, partners, and the support of our community.

Here are some key highlights from our year:

  • Building, validating and testing two industry-first products:
    ‘Neoke Auth’ - the fastest way to onboard and authenticate a user across silos;
    And ‘Neoke Hub’ - decentrally storing and securely managing customer data, allowing for seamless and trusted interactions.
  • Raised €1.3 million from Dreamcraft Ventures, ff Venture Capital, Plug and Play Tech Center & GHARAGE, fuelling our mission to realise the connected trip with persistent traveller identity across all touch points.
  • Partnered with International Air Transport Association (IATA), International Civil Aviation Organization and European Commission, marking significant progress in the piloting and development of digital travel credentials, as well as staying at the forefront of European compliance and regulatory standards.
  • On the commercial front- testing, piloting and signing agreements with renowned airlines, airports, hotels and OTAs. Gearing up for exciting announcements in 2024!
  • It's an honour to have received recognition from industry leaders. Winning the Royal Air Maroc Open Innovation Challenge, being named the 'Hot Startup of 2023' by PhocusWire, and earning the TravelTechTitan award by F-Prime Capital and Eight Roads are real feathers in our cap.
  • Our participation in accelerators from IATA, Plug & Play, Intelak Hub by Emirates and dnata has been instrumental in refining our go-to-market strategy.
