Our mission

Simply put, our mission is making open source
work better—for everyone.

Our story

Here’s what we know. Open source software is incredible, but it’s got some issues. For open source maintainers, a project can feel like a full-time job even when it isn’t—a labor of love, with little direct financial reward. For professional software teams, building on top of open source components can be risky business—especially without the assurances they expect from traditional commercial software.

So we asked ourselves:

How could open source work better for everyone involved?

First, software development teams should be able to depend on the open source software they incorporate into their projects. They should be confident that it is reliable—professionally supported, more secure, easy to integrate, and properly maintained.

Meanwhile, open source maintainers and core teams should be able to build sustainable businesses around their projects. They should have easy access to paying users and to the tools necessary to deliver a professional software experience.

For us, it’s as simple as that. Create a win-win proposition, where everyone sees the benefits.

The end result? More, better software that our entire planet depends on.

That’s the future we see for open source. We’re working together to make it a reality. If you see it, too, join us.
