Open Source Founders Summit 2024
May 27-28
Paris France

The conference about building financially successful and sustainable open source companies.

Do you ever feel like the entire startup ecosystem just doesn’t get your open source company?

Proprietary software founders don’t have to worry about how to build an open source project that’s good enough to be valuable to users — but not so good that it’s impossible to monetize. They don’t have to balance community and customers.

But if you’re building an open source company, those are among your core strategic challenges. OSFS is a no-bullshit place where founders of open source companies can learn from and collaborate with each other to build more successful individual businesses and a stronger ecosystem of open source companies.
