About Open Social

Open Social is an open adoption platform for building online communities and to replace traditional intranets. We fuel efficiency, drive engagement and power positive change to help  organizations innovate from the bottom-up.

Early versions of our software won the Dutch Interactive Award in 2015. The project, Greenpeace Greenwire, activates 90.000 Greenpeace volunteers to make the world a more sustainable and greener place. In the Netherlands alone Greenpeace Greenwire increased volunteering by 600%. 

In 2017 Open Social was the overall winner of the Splash Awards, which celebrate the best work with the Drupal framework in the Benelux.

Open Adoption

Open Social is built using Drupal 8, a web technology for creating ambitious digital experiences with more than a hundred thousand active contributors worldwide. Open Social is developed by a core team of seventeen people and funded by GoalGorilla, a leading Drupal agency from The Netherlands.

We are based at curated tech-hub in Amsterdam and in Twente, both of which are part of the Dutch StartupDelta; Europe’s largest startup ecosystem.
