Let’s Make A Change

Nona aims to ensure that funding and resources are available to sustain open-source projects for the long term. One of the ways we accomplish this vision is through programs that provide support for open source computing projects: our event sponsorship program and our corporate partners program. Contact us to discuss our linking, advertising, trademarking, and hosting options.

How does Nona support its projects?


Project teams benefit from participation in the Nona network, which includes leaders from a variety of software and scientific communities. Nona leverages our broad, international network to help build connections that support our projects. In addition to making strategic introductions, Nona creates opportunities for project leaders to connect with one another as a group, both in person and virtually.


Nona projects benefit from elevated visibility as a result of their association with the organization. We work to highlight all of our projects through various communications and marketing activities. We also find opportunities to showcase our projects with potential and current corporate sponsors.


Nona provides a number of services for projects under the open-source synthetic biology umbrella including financial administration, operational and legal support. Funded projects are also eligible to use Nona resources and infrastructure to help raise money for the project.
