Our Mission

Innovating trust within the digital world!

By driving technical innovation forward.

Trust is part of
our DNA.

The digital transformation has caused a trust paradox.

Although companies processing personal data have to comply with increasingly strict and complex regulations, many people feel that their data is not handled with care.

We merge software best practices with a "digital trust catalyst", the blockchain technology. This combination allows us to create unique products where the trust in the careful handling of data is already established via the underlying technology.

With our products, we support our clients in managing different compliance topics (data protection, information security, business continuity, whistleblowing, etc.), as well as in the use of blockchain technology for applications that require a high degree of tamper resistance and transparency.

Founder Story

Akarion GmbH was founded in 2017 in the "Tabakfabrik" in Linz by four experts:

Chief Executive Officer

"One of our greatest strengths when founding Akarion was that each of us has his own role and the four of us can cover all important areas together. Now, we still benefit from the different perspectives, as we make all important decisions as a team."

Chief Web Officer

"Akarion is trying to solve the problem that data is monetized more and more ruthlessly. With our solutions, we want to convince companies that it does not have to be difficult to use data economically and mindfully at the same time."

Chief Technology Officer

"What sets us apart is that we meet known requirements with new approaches and technologies. A comprehensible presentation of the complex issues is particularly important. Only those who maintain a constant dialogue with customers and partners can be successful in the long term."

Chief Operational Officer

"At Akarion we live an agile way of working. We encourage commitment and a certain "fire" for the own working area. In return, we offer our employees the chance to further develop themselves and to realize their ideas. There is no rigid task fulfilment at Akarion."

Two locations. One strong team.

We develop and distribute our products from Austria and Germany.


The heart of our development: Technology hotspot "Tabakfabrik" Linz

The "Tabakfabrik" (tobacco factory) was shut down in 2009 and has now become an innovation space which, in addition to Akarion, offers around 250 organisations optimal space and networking conditions for cross-sector cooperation.
