Determined to create forward-thinking solutions.


Our Inspiration


The scientist and explorer Fridtjof Nansen was no stranger to ambitious pursuits. In 1887, he set his sights on crossing the icy terrain of Greenland. None before him had succeeded, so Fridtjof took a different, counterintuitive approach: to start from the hazardous east and head west towards a populated port. It was no longer a course into the unknown, but a journey where the only option was forward.

We are named after Fridtjof Nansen, the game-changing explorer. He believed the best way forward is through improving what may already be taken for granted. Like him, we approach challenges with a sense of adventure, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.

We're a determined team of explorers who strive to create forward-thinking solutions. Every challenge we face is a journey together. Joe Grause
