A half day enterprise forum exploring models of collaboration in the field of OpenTechnology. Whether it's businesses or the cultural and voluntary sector, Open Source Software and the Internet have provided the freedom to build technologies to suit your creative needs. However it still takes substantial resources and knowhow to realise your project.

PeerInvestment aims to show how partnerships using public domain working models can benefit initiatives, enterprises and projects of all scales. Our focus for this event will be on Open Source Software; developer communities, forming open development projects, sharing costs on a project, or working in large scale consortiums.

PeerInvestment wants to emphasize that outside traditional business models, new business concepts have emerged based on the shared values of cooperation, information sharing, peer review and transparency.
