Who are we?

Open Social is developed by a core team of 17 people and funded by GoalGorilla, a leading digital agency from the Netherlands.

Greenpeace Greenwire, an early version of our software won the Dutch Interactive Awards in 2015. It activates 90.000 volunteers to make the world a greener and more sustainable place. In the Netherlands alone Greenpeace Greenwire increased volunteering by 600%.

Open Social is built using Drupal 8, a web technology for creating ambitious digital experiences with more than a 100.000 active contributors worldwide. In 2017 Open Social was the overall winner of the Splash Awards, which celebrate the best work with the Drupal framework in the Benelux.
