This startup wants to keep open source projects going and is helping them find funding using ethical advertising. Code Sponsor is a new sales and marketing venture that pays developers who add a single line of code to the Readme part of their project.
The platform connects sponsors with open source projects in an effort to sustain the work developers do and avoid burnout. The developer tool also helps sponsors by reaching a network of software makers with relevant and targeted messaging.
Code Sponsor uses sponsored advertising as a tactic to keep open source projects going instead of relying on donation buttons, which "rarely results in consistent or meaningful income." This solution is also built by other software developers instead of marketers.
