About Open Social

Open Social is an open-source platform to build online communities. Replacing traditional intranets, it fuels efficiency and positive change. It supports organizations to innovate bottom-up instead of top-down.

Early versions of our software have won the Dutch Interactive Awards in 2015. The project, Greenpeace Greenwire, helps 90.000 active volunteers of Greenpeace make the world a greener and better place to life. In the Netherlands our software increased volunteering by 600%. 

We offer our software in three versions: free distribution, fully maintained software-as-a-service and an enterprise edition.
