This is Binpress’ pitch deck to raise their $1m seed following 500Startups.
We are the marketplace for free and commercial open-source code. We provide a platform for developers to build profitable businesses from releasing and working on their own code. We connect those developers with businesses and entreprenuers who
wish to build software products with open-source code.
We provide the commercial layer to the long-tail of open-source, providing open-source developers with the options that made MySQL and RedHat huge open-source businesses. We provide licensing, marketing, sales, payment processing, support and ticketing system and a custom services system – everything an open-source project needs to run like a professional and sustainable business.
We were bootstrapped and profitable before joining 500startups accelerator in the summer of 2013.
