Although established giants like Microsofthave proprietary software and systems, much of today’s internet is built on open source software. So it’s only natural that companies, startups in particular, are going to build their tools with it too.
A new era of tech events has begun
We’re back in New York this November for the 4th edition of our growth-focused technology event.
Curious about how new companies are using open source to change the business landscape — and be successful despite large tech companies dominating the market — I polled a group of startup founders from YEC , asking them the following question:
How will open source software change the way SMBs are able to do business or compete against giants?
Brand stories will shine
Open source software not only lowers the cost of starting a business, but it also affords more customization. Startups need to stand out, and customizing the experience so it is truly “yours” means that you can provide a unique experience for your fans. Whether that means it’s more fun or more streamlined, when you wow your customers they’ll share your story. – Aaron Schwartz , Modify Watches
