Growing India's FOSS Ecosystem

FOSS United is a non-profit foundation that aims at promoting & strengthening the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) ecosystem in India.

India is now a hub of startups, innovative consumer software, developer communities, and large scale technological infrastructure. However, somewhere along the lines, the spirit of FOSS and hacking seems to have been overshadowed. This is illustrated by the disproportionately low number of quality FOSS projects coming out of India given a thriving industry compared to the explosion of projects that has happened globally over the last decade. The foundation aims to provide grassroots support to FOSS projects and events, and evolve into a community-industry collaboration with a diverse group of members and patrons.

Industry Partnership

The foundation was started as a collaboration between the teams at Frappe, the publisher of ERPNext, one of the largest FOSS projects out of India, and Zerodha. Currently we have two more partners supporting us, and we invite more organisations to join the movement.
