05 – Business & Platforms

Many people ask: Can you make money with Open Source?

Don’t worry. There are a lot of business models and examples for Open-Source-Software as well as for Open-Source-Hardware businesses.

One of the obvious business models is to become a platform – an open platform that enables and facilitates an ecosystem of other products, services and roles. Take a look at this video from OSVehicle – one of the many Open-Source-Car-Projects in the world. 

Wan’t to learn and think more about the platform model? Check Simone Ciceros Platform Design Toolkit or my recent post called „Open-Source-Business-Model for (a) Circular Washing Machine(s) „.
