The Free and open-source (FOSS) movement started in the 90s in India. However, it was not until 2016 that Zerodha and ERPNext started the FOSS United Foundation.

Founded in 2008, ERPNext was developed by Founder and CEO Rushabh Mehta to manage his family business. Bootstrapped since inception, the company provides FOSS ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems to its clients.

In a conversation with YourStory, Zerodha CTO Kailash Nadh and Rushabh Mehta talk about the different ways FOSS United Foundation helps developers and hackers with its solutions.
