About this Event

Open Source Software Business Models: Academics looking to maximize the impact of their research shouldn't consider commercialization a Faustian bargain, trading open publication and monetary returns. Open-source software can be a successful strategy towards both impact and income. Join John Lee of OUP as he discusses why open source provides substantial advantages for software startups and why it has become the de facto method for deploying and commercializing software.

Lunch will be available for in-person attendees. CSE building map.
