Our story

Harbour is dedicated to revolutionizing the way businesses execute and manage contracts.

Our backgrounds are in content-driven agreements, data visualization and making easy-to-use products.

 

Based in San Francisco, Harbour began with a goal of empowering creators. Specifically, relieving the pain businesses experience when working with a high volume of repetitive contracts and licenses. We set out to solve this problem by establishing a new digital signature and contract management standard, one that starts from a place of trust and ends with a platform that is as beautiful as it is secure.​

Dated workflows around rights, permissions, and content acquisition have exposed a widening gap between the speed and scale at which businesses need to legitimately operate, and the enterprise tools that are currently available. Harbour closes this gap with an easy-to-use visual platform that is made for anyone sending out and managing contracts.

Whether it’s getting permission to use a video from social media, executing a contract with a freelancer, or sending out NDAs, Harbour provides scalable and secure tools for all forms of agreements.

We are charting new standards and would love to welcome you along on the journey, either as a customer, partner or teammate.
