Agathon Group has been providing hardware, software, and hosted solutions for a variety of organizations since 1999; before, during and after the infamous "dotcom bubble" that claimed so many other companies.
We started from a desire to help non-profits achieve their strategic goals by helping solve the harder technical hurdles. Our clientele today reflects those roots, ranging from regional telecommunications firms to worldwide mission organizations, from local high schools to secondary technical institutes in Europe, from a leader in biotech instrumentation and environmental research to the largest Christian ticketing firm on the internet.
We get asked frequently about our name. "Agathon" is a Greek term found in the New Testament of the Bible (Romans 8:28, Philippians 1:6) meaning, roughly, "That which is good." We like to just say, "The good stuff" as an indication of the quality of work for which we continue to strive.
