MAKING MONEY OUT OF COMMUNITIES  "Community driven business (OSS business) = management of: - Project(s) - Communities - Business" Ossi-project 2007 “历史的浪潮比我们做得还要快。创新者被抛在后面, 他们曾经改变的世界拿着他们的主意向着意想不到的方向跑了。” Kim Stanley Robinson "It is misleading to talk about Community or OSS business models, rather one should view them as drivers or enablers and creators of new business opportunities and find ways of capturing value in the opportunities they have brought about." Mikko Puhakka 2008 Open Source. Collaborated © OpenSourceCamp
  28. 28. Conclusions  Your business ecosystem of customers, prospects and partners together are far more powerful than any individual relation to an individual person. • The ability to create and grow trustful communities for a better business experience, resulting in more market acceptance and eventually market leadership.
