The Open Web has changed the world and we as its citizens have all benefited. We’ve learned skills, launched careers, formed friendships, met life partners, championed causes, and experienced the outputs of infinite creativity. We’ve also built businesses – many of them centered in web technologies – that wouldn’t exist without the Open Web.
WordPress is a product of the Open Web, built on the four core freedoms of open source software. WordPress powers more than a third of all websites and represents a multi-billion dollar economy spread over a wide range of ecosystems across cultures, languages, and geographies. For businesses relying on or connected to the Open Web, WordPress matters.
Web technology companies have more opportunity than ever to grow through WordPress. From direct integrations that attract new and retain existing customers to creating entire sub ecosystems (e.g. hosting, services, and marketplaces), WordPress is the best vehicle for expanding reach and impact.
