Through helping companies prevent open source threats, we hope to bring more attention to the support that is needed to sustain open source projects. The founders met in graduate school at Cornell Tech. We believe in the power of open source software but we felt that there was too much junk out there and soon GitLinks was born. Our mission is to be a force for good in the open source community.
