Investing in Open Source projects is like making a fire in the rain. It’s difficult. First, you can get early traction and visibility. You can get thousands of Github stars. But then, exchanging them for real money is tough, and very often, your product’s best competitor is your product’s open-source edition.

From the moment I realized the Paradigm of software development has shifted, I became a firm believer in composable commerce.
