60min: Legal entities for Free Software projects


As a FOSS/OSHW project grows, at some stage it often reaches a point where it requires a legal entity for better operation – whether this be to gather donations, pay for development, handle finances, organise events, consolidate rights, better governance or other reasons. So far in Europe the only real option was to set up an NGO yourself or join an entity in the US.

But finally three conservancy-like organisations are emerging in Europe and aim to offload this overhead from your projects.

Join our panel to learn if and which of these organisations could help your project flourish best, as well as pose any open questions or concerns you may still have.
