Nuno SebastiãoCEO, Feedzai
“Historically, governments and very large companies had the exclusive of Space Domain Activities. Exciting as it was in the 60’s or 70’s it led to a lack of innovation and interest from society in general. Over the last decade, entrepreneurs that were sucessfull in other domains started to direct their focus and energy into the Space Domain and as a consequence people are dreaming again of what can be achieved, of what can be built. This European Space for Business programme has the potential to fast track a new crop of aspiring entrepreneurs that want to revolutionize the Space Domain.”
Prior to starting Feedzai, Nuno was an engineer for the European Space Agency, and worked closely with several successful technology startups.
In 2011, Nuno, along with his fellow co-founders Paulo Marques and Pedro Bizarro, established Feedzai to fight financial fraud with advanced machine learning technology.
Fast forward to today, Nuno has been named the Entrepreneur of the Year by London Business School, shared a stage with tech leaders such as Stephen Hawking and Steve Wozniak, and has been the driving force of Feedzai’s global growth.
Under Nuno’s leadership, Feedzai has raised more than $282 million in venture funding, surpassed 500 employees, and continues to keep commerce safe for many of the leading banks, retailers, and payment processors around the globe.
Nuno has an MBA from the London Business School.
