We are North

Inspired by the potential in impossibility.

What we believe in

Together, technology and people are limitless.

Right now technology is seen by many as a distraction. You either engage with a device or you engage with life. This makes sense because technology doesn’t always seamlessly fit into our lives — and this is what we aim to fix.

At North, we’re building a future where technology is human-centric, discreetly built into fundamental parts of our lives that already exist.

We believe that the relationship between people and technology shouldn’t be an “either, or” — it should be a powerful partnership, because together they are much greater than either one alone.
