Building an Open Source Business

Dave Rosenberg, CEO of Mulesource, recently published an informative article on Sandhill.com regarding his experiences in starting an open source company - from looking for funding, to legal and IP issues, to community development, and pricing, Dave's article is good food for thought.

He describes MuleSource as a second-generation open source company - that is an apt description as RHAT, JBoss, MySQL and others have paved the way with respect to business models, enterprise acceptance of open source, sales strategies, and experienced open source employees are accelerating the rise of recently funded companies.
