About us

The Monogon story began in 2018 with the inception of Nexantic, a cloud infrastructure startup founded by Hendrik Hofstadt and Leopold Schabel. Operating high-stakes infrastructure for the financial industry across both cloud and on-premise environments, we realized that no existing platform met our operational and security requirements — and started the Monogon project.

In 2021, Nexantic was acquired. The Monogon project, along with its engineering team, was spun out into Monogon SE to continue its mission as an independent open source company.

In it for the mission

Monogon SE is funded by its founders and customers, with no outside investors. The only thing that matters to us is the value we provide to our customers and the community. Building a new and radically different platform is a marathon, not a sprint. Our independence allows us to focus on what matters most –  building technology that we're proud of and fostering a sustainable community.
