Before co-founding Startin’blox, Sylvain created a project called Open Funding, a project born in the middle of the crowdfunding boom and which had the ambition to offer a co-financing solution to open source projects.
He tells us in this podcast, the story, the intentions, the best and the worst of this adventure and the lessons to be learned.
By publishing this podcast, I hope we can take the best of his experience to continue to explore this issue that is more than ever relevant.
More on co-funding
From Open Funding to Startin’blox, the issue of co-funding open source projects is central. Open Initiative was born at the height of crowdfunding. What lessons has this project taught us at Startin’blox? Where are we in the reflection process?

What Open Funding lacked and what we still lack at Startin’blox is probably the jobs we have to invent. In this extract, Sylvain briefly describes this profile.
Open source beyond digital
Open source goes far beyond digital, it’s a change in production mode that we believe in.
