Empowered to innovate

Rauva is on a mission to unlock the freedom of entrepreneurship across the globe.
The journey starts in Portugal, with your first ever localised finance app.


The biggest challenge starting my business was the bureaucracy. Until I found Rauva, for me, it was impossible to have my own company in Portugal. Rauva not only created it for me, but they also helped guide me through all my fiscal duties. They empowered me as an entrepreneur, so I can grow my business and create jobs. This is what Rauva helps me accomplish, in a fast and safe way.
