Autark's AGP-73 Proposal

Our plans for the year to come

Since January 2019, Autark has had a great opportunity to work on advancing decentralized governance tools to enable open source mega projects to flourish as part of the Aragon Flock Program. We are happy to have been able to launch on Rinkeby our flagship product, That Planning Suite - a collection of Aragon apps that allows DAOs to curate issues, collectively budget, and design custom reward and bounty programs.
We are now applying for a follow-on grant in Aragon Network Vote #3 (ANV-3) to continue and grow our vision for decentralized governance products and tools. To that purpose, we will rebrand That Planning Suite to Open Enterprise, and will expand on our product strategy as outlined in our proposal.
AGP-73 is our proposal for the upcoming vote. It is application heavy, user-focused and includes initiatives that will provide DAOs with increased project and financial planning capabilities, more visibility into organization actions, and robustness in data storage. We also plan to use Open Enterprise ourselves to operate a strategic DAO tasked with generating revenue and strengthening the sustainability of the Aragon Network. You can find the key aspects of our proposal summarized below.
