ABOUT A GROUP OF ASPIRING POLYMATHS

WHY NAO?

In Mandarin, the character 脑 (NǍO) means brain or mind, while the character 闹 (NÀO) refers to noise and forms part of the description of something both lively and noisy.

And, finally, na0 is internet geek for an impatient NOW!

Group NAO is the combined brain power of you and me (because you’re only ever as good as the people, you surround yourself with). And at our very core is a really impatient and ambitious curiosity to see what comes next and what we can do to make it more.

 

NAO people are aspiring polymaths

We believe that problems are best solved collaboratively and working across sectors and industries. NAO people are creative thinkers and experienced strategists, strong analysts and focused doers, ideating developers and constructive nonconformists. We set the bar sky high and expect you do too, because you are only ever as good as the people you surround yourself with.
