Why Should You Invest In Open Source?
Make your voice heard
Participate in discussions around the future of your projects and provide the necessary funding to ensure its survival. By funding Initiatives, you will be able to upvote issues that will reflect back to the community, so they know what you consider to be important.
Fund open source projects to ensure that maintainers are keeping the roadmap and maintenance of the project healthy. Find out if a project is supported by one of our Partners to help ensure your project will not be left with an unexpected burden and technical debt.
Share the cost with multiple participants, rather than investing in open source alone. Connect with Partners who hire the experts who ensure the open source projects you depend on meet your company’s needs. If you use open source projects as part of your product or internal development, you can either spend millions of dollars working around issues yourself and maintaining that fork or spend a few thousand dollars with the right experts who can make sure open source communities accept the changes you need.
Hire from the community
Find talented contributors of all skill levels and backgrounds from the open-source community to work on your projects.
