A new form of enterprise adopting a network structure. Examples: Sensorica, Bitcoin, etc. Participation is open to anyone who wants to contribute, as is the case with any open source project. Calls for participation are usually broadcasted through social media and other similar channels. In order to ease the integration of new participants, everything about the project is published with public access, keeping with the open-source tradition of full transparency.

An open enterprise is a self-sustaining economic operation that clusters mature open projects (the ones that have generated exchange value, i.e. products) into business operations. The open enterprise level is the value capturing level. The main role of the open enterprise is to capture the value created at the project level, by offering the exchange value (products and services) to the market. In doing so, the open enterprise generates revenue, which is redistributed back to all contributors to the projects behind these products and services.


An open enterprise can be forked and remixed (like open source code can be forked and remixed).


Note its ability to bypasses traditional centralized and controlled processes, scarce monetary currency, and the labor market.
