who we are
Meet Open Social

At Open Social we believe building tools made for sharing can bring people together, spark ideas and drive organizations forward. Open Social’s purpose-built online community software allows organizations to create online spaces where members can communicate, collaborate, connect and share expertise and experiences from anywhere in the world.

Open Social is developed by a core team of 25 people. The team is based in curated tech-hub TNW West in Amsterdam and in Twente, both of which are part of the Dutch Startup Delta, Europe’s largest startup ecosystem.
