#39: What happens if OpenSanctions discontinues its service?

Category: Commercial · Last updated: · Permalink

OpenSanctions has operated as a bootstrapped, profit-generating business for several years. We've also developed extensive business continuity and disaster recovery plans.

In the unlikely event of a business shut-down, however, the open source nature of our product would become key: any technologist or organization could pick up our technology and continue maintenance, hopefully relying on the same network of partners we are developing. We’re building a community resource, not just a startup.
