Openspace is a one-touch app marketplace for anyone to discover, purchase, install and sync apps across any smartphone, tablet, desktop or laptop. Founded in June 2010 and launching in April 2011, Openspace is an app store for you, not your device. Openspace was co-founded by Robert Reich and Randy Watler and is a privately held company based in Boulder, Colo. The Foundry Group led the seed round of investment followed by prominent angel investors from Boulder and New York such as David Cohen and Zelkova Ventures. Jason Mendelson serves on the Board of Directors.

The Developers Cooperative influences the rules and policies that govern Openspace â€“ the first app marketplace that gives developers a say in the rules that govern how they work.
App developers no longer need to rely on the â€œbig boysâ€ to sell our apps. With Openspace, we can distribute our apps directly to customers without being limited by the rules of the big app marketplaces. The Developers Cooperative makes sure that app developersâ€™ voices are heard in every decision that affects their businesses.
By signing up for the Developers Cooperative, you can help set the agenda and write the rules that govern the sales of your apps. The Co-op can help you find the renewed sense of freedom that made you want to be a developer in the first place.
