Open Source Founders Summit 2024
May 27-28
Paris France


Why this event?

Open source companies face challenges and opportunities that proprietary software companies never encounter. General startup programs, investors and your own employees often won’t understand how to navigate these challenges or take advantage of the opportunities unless they have open source experience. The open source founders summit gives founders a place to learn from each other and support each other in building open source companies.

What is different about OSFS?

Not organized by a venture firm. Unlike all the other open source business events, the primary organizers aren’t VCs — and including perspectives from both bootstrapped and venture-backed companies is important to us.

Not DevTool focused: Many successful open source companies don’t make DevTools. We want all open source companies to be part of the conversation.

Practical info: You’re a busy founder. OSFS is all about actionable takeaways you can put into practice immediately and fresh perspectives on your biggest challenges.

A unique event format

Morning talks: Single-track talks that are both thought-provoking and actionable. No panels.

Afternoon unconference workshops: Afternoon breakout sessions where you can discuss specific challenges, from community building to sales to revenue building to acquisitions.

Networking Breaks: Social events to provide plenty of time & space for one-on-one conversations.
