The 3 entrepreneurs have collectively raised over US$100M in venture capital funding and Megan only does investments in enterprise and OSS companies, so the discussion was enlightening.
We discussed from founders and investors perspectives about OSS in particular
- costs, freedom & flexibility vs. centralized governance,
- how open source helps attract talent and its community aspect,
- why open source could become the model for innovation,
- the risks, how to choose an open source project to integrate into one company's development...
.. and a few more topics!
I really thank Megan, Sacha, Emile and John and I am sure you will love this episode. Enjoy the episode!
