Runa Capital actively invests in open-source startups (like Nginx and MariaDB) and considers an active developer community instrumental for software businesses. We always look for promising tech companies with a fast-growing army of fans, track them on Github and open-source part of our findings as an index.
Runa Open Source Startup (ROSS) Index publishes the top open-source startups by the annualised growth rate (AGR) of GitHub stars at their repositories. Such an approach allows for highlighting those OSS products that were on top of developers’ minds during the past quarter or year. Our index is transparent, measurable and entirely focused on startups.
