Commercial Open Source (COSS) Companies – or companies which would not exist without the coexistence of an open source project – are growing in number and size over the past number of years.

The COSS category has grown from $10B in 2018 to over $500B today and specialist VCs, such as OSS Capital have emerged to invest specifically in COSS companies.

Come along to this TechBrew event to hear about the various COSS business models and trends in COSS spinouts from two of the US top universities – Dr. Cindy Chepanoske (Carnegie Mellon Univeriy) and Andrew Wichmann (Johns Hopkins University) will be sharing their insights on COSS companies.
