Let’s agree on what matters

Buying and selling technology is still harder than it should be, and there’s a painful roadblock keeping it this way: the negotiation and approval of contracts.

Our vision is that contracts should be APIs – programmatically accessible and built on open-source standards. To make that vision a reality, we’ve assembled an amazing team of technologists, operators, and legal minds.

Common Paper is backed by venture investors and angels including founders, operators, and attorneys from some of the most exciting companies in tech. We’re a growing, all-remote team located across the US.

We’re embarking on a big journey, but it isn’t our first

Jake Stein, CEO
