About Open Social

Open Social is an open-source platform for building online communities. Replacing traditional intranets, Open Social fuels bottom-up innovation within organizations.

Early versions of our software have won the Dutch Interactive Awards in 2015. The project, Greenpeace Greenwire, helps 90.000 active volunteers of Greenpeace to bring positive change around the globe. In the Netherlands alone our software increased volunteering by 600%. 

We offer our software in two versions: a free distribution and fully maintained software-as-a-service. At the time of writing Open Social is powering more than 1000 active communities and intranets.

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

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