Abstract: A popular question that one is often confronted with when active in the open source business is: How can you make money with something that is free? That it is possible has been shown by a number of companies generating remarkable revenues with an open source business model. This presentation will explore the question of how this can be done and how it can be used to operate a sustainable, scaling business model.
