About us

Why

Firms or companies exist in order to create value by using resources to create products or provide services.

However, intermediaries and third parties such as governments decrease the output of those organizations by imposing restrictions and creating complex regulatory frameworks.

Aragon was born to disintermediate the creation and maintenance of companies and other organizational structures.

We were very inspired by Nobel prize Ronald Coase and his amazing paper The Nature of the Firm and Yochai Benkler's Linux and the Nature of the Firm. Both explore the concept of company.

We believe that the blockchain and the Internet are changing the incentives for companies to exist, and we are building tools for the next generation of companies that will take advantage of these changes.
