There are different ways open source projects have been and could be funded.

This session will give a high-level overview of the kinds of funding and try to abstract some of the attributes of what works and what doesn’t.

This is also an open discussion where we want feedback around actual experiences with funding models from different projects to see how we can learn collectively about how to fund open source projects.

* What are the right incentives and alignments for funding?
* What attributes determine the right funding model for a given project?
* Are there creative ways to fund that we haven’t talked about but we should?

Come join to learn about different funding approaches, including how CommunityBridge: Funding can support open source projects.
