Description

One core question around open source is how do you fund it? Well, there is always that PayPal donate button. But that's been a tremendous failure for many projects. Often the go-to answer is consulting.





But what if you don't want to trade time for money? You could take things up a notch and change the equation, exchanging value for money. That's what Ines Montani and her co-founder did when they started Explosion.ai with SpaCY as the foundation.





Listen to her story about building a sustainable software business on open source and Python.
