Our Mission


OCV does venture differently. We’re on a mission to democratize venture funding and reduce the entry barrier to startup creation.

We form companies centered around open source software projects with commercial applications. Rather than founders pitching us for investments, OCV identifies open source projects with traction and potential and seeks out builders and technologists to launch our ideas. OCV Fund I invests the personal capital of Sid Sijbrandij who serves as the General Partner of the firm.
