The Portuguese startup Sensei, which creates and develops solutions for retail, aims to become the biggest player in autonomous stores globally even before 2030.

This is the conviction of Vasco Portugal, the company's CEO, expressed during the conference “Startups: the innovation engine of the corporate world” in which Ana Casaca, Galp's Global Head of Innovation, also participated; João Diogo, Head of Retail at Galp; and Diogo Pinto Sousa, executive director for Small Medium and Corporate Markets at Microsoft Portugal.

“We want to be the biggest player in autonomous stores globally, we don't think about anything other than that, so we work every day to achieve that goal, and I don't think we need ten years”, revealed Vasco Portugal.

Sensei was founded in 2017 by Joana Rafael, Nuno Moutinho, Paulo Carreira and Vasco Portugal, who won the João Vasconcelos Award – Entrepreneur of the Year 2021.

It develops technology based on “computer vision” for the retail sector. In Portugal, it carried out projects for Sonae (Continente) and Galp, but has others in progress at an international level.

The conference “Stratups: the innovation engine of the corporate world”, which took place on the 23rd of June, was promoted by Microsoft Portugal.
