About InnerSource Commons

InnerSource Commons Vision

The InnerSource Commons is a thriving community that empowers organisations and people worldwide to apply and gain the benefits of open collaboration in their internal work.
Founded in 2015, the InnerSource Commons is now supporting and connecting over 3000 individuals from over 750 companies, academic institutions, and government agencies. The InnerSource Commons Foundation was incorporated on February 19th, 2020 and is now a 501(c)(3) public charity.


InnerSource Commons Mission

We empower developers and organisations to apply open collaboration principles in their daily work.

We are the neutral hub and central collaboration space for InnerSource knowledge. As such, we maintain our independence and operate on a lean budget.

We build a strong, inclusive community and industry partnerships. Together, we apply open collaboration principles to drive the conversation about InnerSource and steward the InnerSource body of knowledge.

How We Work

The InnerSource Commons utilizes open source methods to provide organizations practicing InnerSource a forum for discussing and improving the practice of InnerSource through the sharing of experiences (under the Chatham House Rule), creation and review of InnerSource patterns, and the open exchange of ideas.

Interested individuals and companies are welcome to participate and contribute content to the ISC. In general, contributed content will be made available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License attributed to No fees are required to participate.
