For Project Leaders

Find funding opportunities

One of our main goals at OpenTeams is to channel more funding and resources into community-driven projects, to support transparency in their governance, and keep the communities around them healthy and accelerate their development. We do this in a way that keeps the community in charge of its destiny.

Recognize all contributors

OpenTeams provides a platform for you to recognize all of your contributors for code written, talks given, issues closed, conversations facilitated, ideas provided, or anything else that makes the project successful.

Help potential Sponsors

Sponsors want to know what features the project itself wants to work on and participate in the conversation about what to fund. Open Source communities currently have many ad hoc and often opaque ways to decide what to work on. OpenTeams will provide a clear way for verified project leaders to let sponsors know which features have support from the community as well as any commitments.

For Funders

Fund projects your organization depends on

Find and support features the project community wants funded. These are work done on a project (implementing new features, supporting new interfaces, fixing bugs, improving documentation, etc.). Get clarity about support of these features by those that govern the project.

Hire from the community

Clear descriptions of contributions made to the projects you care about provides an invaluable source for identifying capable and proven, or developing and promising talent to collaborate with or employ.
