Well over a decade ago, in my operating career, Open Source presented itself as a solution to a critical development deadline for one of my engineering teams. I was inspired. Little did I know how this would evolve. As I entered the world of Venture Capital, I was determined to support Open Source Software development by seeking out and investing in the best and brightest people behind it.
In 2014, we saw a huge leap in interest from the number of collaborators – which grew to over 50 and the number or respondents – 1,240. The survey itself revealed an important corollary trend – the growth of all the critical components that take Open Source into its next level of growth – People, Applications, Services, Specialization, and adoption by industries that take us into the social fabric of everyday life, education (76 percent), government (67 percent), and health care (45 percent). We encourage you view the presentation and view the webinar to hear more about this exciting story of the Virtuous Cycle.
