Reimagining Industry

IT ALL STARTED WITH A SERIES OF SIMPLE QUESTIONS, BORN FROM OUR BELIEF THAT CREATIVITY IS HUMANKIND’S GREATEST ASSET.

What if we could evolve industries to re-think ownership, value and commerce? Create new revenue streams? Power uncharted creative possibilities? Protect culturally and historically significant creations for the benefit of everyone? And what if we could do this—and more—using technology to deliver open, tamperproof, secure and transparently governed platforms? At ORIGYN Foundation, we’re developing all of this and more, including the tools and technologies to preserve the creations that define human ingenuity.

WE BRING TOGETHER THE GREATEST CONTEMPORARY PLAYERS ACROSS SELECT INDUSTRIES TO PROTECT, CELEBRATE, ELEVATE AND REWARD CREATIVITY.

ORIGYN IS A FOUNDATION

Creators, brands, value providers and artists evoke a strong image. Their independence is essential, their influence unique. A foundation structure increases transparency, removes the possibility of the organization being bought or merged and eliminates the dynamic of a single controlling entity. The true owner of a foundation is its purpose, which ultimately empowers greater independence and influence for our industry partners.

TEAM

It takes the right team—diverse in its skills, opinions and geography—to pioneer a global mission. ORIGYN was founded in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, but we operate as a unified ecosystem throughout major technology and blockchain hubs in Europe, Asia and the U.S.
