It’s almost a year since we started working on a new project: WooCart.

Why we are backing Earnest Capital featured image

I always had a vision for Niteo to grow into a factory of sane startups. A combination of internal spin-offs, an accelerator, and a VC fund. But with the emphasis on longevity rather than growth rate and unicorns. A little over a year ago in Lisbon, I had a very long evening conversation about the […]

Export Plone to PDFs featured image

Since many years ago, we’ve had a private installation of Plone in Niteo that we call Intra. Short for “intranet”. It is meant to hold our company-wide, non-project-specific documents. I.e. financial reports, internal newsletters, various guides, and internal policies. But as of 2017, we moved most of these documents to our public Handbook, so the […]
