In 2015 the open source WYSIWYG editor project TinyMCE started down the path of commercialization. We set out to balance our ongoing commitment to Tiny’s open source future, while building a viable, sustainable business.

In this talk we'll share an update on this in-progress journey. We'll lift the curtain on some of our business model and pricing experiments, why launching the industry’s first cloud editor platform mattered, and how we expanded our value into the enterprise.

Our goal is to share the growing options available to the founders of open source projects who want their passion project to become a sustainable business. For everyone else, this is a story of building a SaaS business with many lessons applicable to anyone wanting to take a software company up-market.
