Alygne was born on a sunny afternoon at a terrace in California where we
discussed a wide range of topics including bike helmets and financial investments. As
international high-tech founders we realized we had to team up to address our very real and
growing shared frustration:
There is an overabundance of data available, and
yet, it is extremely difficult and
time-consuming to know where a company stands on topics that really matter to us.
What if we could engineer a suite of technological solutions, to easily access
data on several millions of companies and radically simplify decision-making for consuming,
investing or any other action that we take where our money can collectively have an impact
for society? We came up with the founding principles for the technology that we wanted to
Restore balance of power
between individuals and companies. Today, companies are in control:
harvesting personal data, building very precise profiles out of our digital lives. The
reverse? Well, not so true…
Privacy and transparency are
paramount, the user is not the product. The technology should only ask for the
from you. We will never sell your individual data or implement targeted ads.
Democratize the information,
and be agnostic. The objective is not to assert a specific moral compass but
build a tool that gives you the power to define your own. We understand people may have
different opinions and values, and that’s ok!
We are just at the beginning of this journey, and the suite of Alygne tools -
both for BtoC and BtoB - will improve and increase over time. It takes a village to make
such a project successful, so please join us, use the free products, contribute, tell us
where we went wrong! (or where we went right!).
