By integrating traditional commerce into the global market, being a new associative concept with an innovative business model, it is defined as the 1st project in the country with these characteristics.
Combining the technological sector of the project with the structure that encompasses consultancy, training, logistics, content production, payments and operationalization of the entire process on the platform, NKA provides a pioneering business model in the business context.
