Description

Over the last years, people have moved from innovating in secret labs to innovating in the open, and open-source became the way to define industry standards. Today, I am pleased to have Joseph Jacks on the podcast to explore the open-source world. Joseph is the founder and General Partner of OSS Capital a fund that exclusively focuses on early-stage commercial open source companies.


In the episode, we discussed:



  • Why open source as a focus for investment,

  • Why invest in projects and not teams,

  • Commercial open source companies are more capital efficient,

  • More and more people contributing to open source, extrinsic and intrinsic motivations,

  • The one leader's trait that really matters,

  • And so much more!
