Our software comes in three versions: free distribution, a fully maintained standardized software-as-a-service, and a custom enterprise edition. Open Social is built using 'Drupal 8’, a web technology for creating ambitious digital experiences. It has more than a hundred thousand active contributors worldwide. The product is funded by GoalGorilla, a leading Drupal agency from The Netherlands.

Open Social is based in tech-hub TQ in Amsterdam and in Twente, and both are part of the Dutch StartupDelta; Europe’s largest startup ecosystem.
