Business model

A business model describes how you plan to make money 1. Here is the suggested business model for the Lino Software Foundation.



The Lino Software Foundation uses their income for the following activities.

  • Employ one or several developers and run a team responsible for development and maintenance of the framework. Optionally delegate this task to a third-party development provider.

  • Employ administrative personnel for management tasks and public relations.

  • Operate one or several Lino sites required as an infrastructure for their work.

  • Distribute donations to underlying free software projects.

  • Refund costs for training, meeting or travelling to their members or employees.
