Welcome to Freedom of Choice

The OpenChain Project has a diverse, global commercial partner network expanding rapidly across multiple continents. This supports our mission to ensure every organization of every size can adopt our industry standard.

The Partners in Our Network

While many companies want to use our free reference material and self-certification service, other companies want to collaborate with law firms, service providers and certification authorities. We are fortunate to work with some of the very best.

Connect with Our Partners

You can connect with our individual partners by clicking their logos above. If you want assistance in understanding which partners are available to provide services in a particular geography you can contact Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager, at scoughlan@linuxfoundation.org.

Become a Partner

This process for partner application is straightforward. Applicants should prepare a three slide (or more) deck explaining the organization, what services they plan to offer, and how they intend to engage with the OpenChain community more broadly. This will go before an ad hoc board review committee. The deck can be sent to Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager, at scoughlan@linuxfoundation.org for processing.

Our Guiding Principle

The OpenChain Project is keen to ensure that any company, anywhere can adopt OpenChain easily on their own. At the same time we are always seeking to reduce barriers to entry for our industry standard, especially for companies that lack internal resources to complete OpenChain Conformance. This is where the OpenChain Partner Program comes in.

How It Works

OpenChain Partners are law firms, consultancies and certification authorities with experience in open source and engagement with the OpenChain Project community. OpenChain Partners may use the OpenChain trademarks if they meet the formal requirements of our Partner Program and are accepted by the Steering Committee and Governing Board of the project.

Users can approach any of the partners listed on our website with an expectation of excellent service provision. We seek partners with a focus on excellence and a positive, thoughtful approach focused on building long-term relationships. You can learn more by contacting Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager, at scoughlan@linuxfoundation.org.
