Thank you to each and every one of you for making the decision to be transparent, share your designs, and be a part of the open hardware ecosystem. We appreciate your hard work and dedication to open source hardware. 

At OSHWA, we remain invested in our principles: organizing events; educating the public about open source hardware and its socially beneficial uses; organizing the movement around shared values and principles; collecting, compiling and publishing data on the Open Source Hardware movement; and providing a way for creators to indicate that their products meet a standard for open-source compliance.

If you would like to support these initiatives and vote on who is on the OSHWA board, please consider getting an OSHWA membership. We have a wide range of membership levels, including a new lifetime membership tier: buy once and you’ll never have to renew your membership again. Membership not for you? That’s ok! We also welcome, and greatly appreciate, donations and Open Hardware Summit sponsorships

As always, we welcome feedback and would love to hear your thoughts on OSHWA and what you would like us to focus on during the next year. If you are interested in reaching out to us, please email us at
