FOSS Pledge

Pretty much all technology companies today are built on Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). If you are a company, take the pledge to support FOSS projects and communities that provide value to your organization.

As an organisation, we pledge to:

  1. Openly credit and talk about the FOSS that we use in our organisation and acknowledge the value we derive from them wherever appropriate.

  2. Encourage our developers and technical staff to create and contribute to FOSS and participate in FOSS communities and activities.

  3. Try and provide financial and other support to the FOSS projects that are valuable to our organisation.

  4. Publish notes on our aforementioned FOSS related activities at least annually.

Sign the Pledge



India is a thriving tech hub thanks to countless organisations building innovative technology on top of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) obtained freely from across the globe. Indian developers represent one of the largest developer pools and yet, the number of FOSS projects that come out of India leave a lot to be desired compared to its global counterparts. We also rarely see technology-first companies acknowledge and credit the FOSS used in their organisations. This simple FOSS pledge aims to serve as an impetus to organisations to start acknowleding and contributing to the projects and communities which they derive value from.
