A blog for the enterprise open source community
Webinar on VC funding for OSS-related vendorsMatthew Aslett, May 26, 2010 @ 12:37 pm ET
On Thursday, June 3 at 12pm ET we will be holding a webinar to share some of the findings from our recent report ‘Open to Investment, 2010.’ The report is available here, while a summary of the statistics is here.
The webinar will contain analysis of venture funding in open-source-related vendors in 2009 based on The 451 Group’s database of more than 450 funding deals, beginning with the investment in Cygnus Systems from Greylock Partners and August Capital in 1997.
We will also include the results of a snapshot survey of private investors, designed to complement our previous survey of the sentiment of private investors toward open source, and the likely impact of economic conditions on investment in open-source-related vendors.
The webinar will also take in analysis of venture-backed mergers and acquisitions in 2009 involving OSS-related vendors, an overview of the potential impact of current economic conditions on OSS adoption and investment in OSS-related vendors, and analysis of the vendors we believe are most likely to be considering further funding in the next two years.
We hope you can make the session. Registration is now open.
