Brief business history
Goteo is an initiative managed by the non-profit organization Fundación Fuentes Abiertas (http://fuentesabiertas.org/)
in order to ensure that the principles of openness, neutrality, transparency and independence are maintained through Goteo's development and management “feeder capital” fund. The Foundation also promotes an experimentation laboratory which is applied in turn for the benefit of the common good, open source code, and free knowledge in various social, cultural, and economic spheres.
As well as nice open projects, we need individuals, civic organizations, and public and private entities of all stripes, whose common focus is an interest in the development of a collective, open source, knowledge-based society. Goteo differs from other models of crowdfunding by positioning itself as a social network composed of promoters, co-financers, and collaborators.
