Shareholdings Meet
Open Source

Contribute to community-developed software, own intellectual shareholdings of the software and get rewarded for your contributions.

Our Mission

Empower software developers to create and capture more value.

We are building solutions that enable the contributors of community-developed software to hold "intellectual shares" of the software, just like capital investors own shares of companies. In the new intellectual shareholding model, software developers can invest their talent in promising projects for long-term returns; open-source developers can share donations and sponsorships, get better financial support, and work on what they love.

Help Make a Difference!
Value

Get monetary rewards for your contributions.

Bypass any intermediary that exploits the lasting value you create.

Freedom

Financially support yourself even without joining a company.

Work on what you love.

Borderless

Collaborate with the best talent all around the world.

Program on the beach, in the cafe, or wherever you like.
