Why Agate? Agate Partners is committed to exploiting the power and productivity achieved using object-oriented programming. Object technology solutions can be visualized as software objects containing other software objects, creating layered software components or 'parts'.
The layered, hardened beauty of an agate rock bests visualizes the layered, hardened, beauty of our products.
As a side bar, the Agate is the mascot of our chief architect and owner's home town high school, the Two Harbors "Agates". Two Harbors, MN was initially named Agate Bay in the 19th century.
