 Vision


We envision a world where people love and trust the software in their life because they feel empowered to change it. 

Mission


We empower people to develop and use open-source software for more liberated and peaceful lives.

Values


Creative Empowerment

We are committed to empowering today's learners to create open-source software that will shape the future of their communities and societies. We do this by equipping our students and contributors with the latest software development tools and processes.

Products and Education

We are committed to delivering a high-quality software education curriculum alongside the products we develop. We strive to be an organization that creates unique, world-class software products while prioritizing communities in their development process.

Academic and Industrial Collaboration

We are committed to catalyzing collaboration between academia and industry to bridge the gap between what students learn and what professionals use. We do this by running for-credit programs for students with partnered universities.

Higher Values

We are committed to developing software that enriches peoples' life experiences. When we create, we orient ourselves towards the higher values of courage, love, joy, hope, and peace in life.


Strategy

Open Products

We develop open-source products and invite contributors from all over the world to help shape the future of our creations. As a company, one of our strategies to provide sustainable education is to develop revenue-generating applications that curious learners can help contribute to.


Open Education

We develop open learning resources and partner with universities for educational internship programs. Through this, we facilitate an agile, open-source software development environment where students gain practical software development experience.


2021



The primary strategy for 2021 will be developing our open source projects and hosting education programs that empower people to create and use open-source software.

Our first year is about building credibility, forming partnerships, and executing our programs. We will create high-quality open-source software and encourage other people to do so.


Developing our Digital Brand

With the help of [Raj](https://www.linkedin.com/in/raj-paul-368827136/), our newly onboarded design lead, we're entirely redesigning our Grey Software website [on Figma](https://www.figma.com/file/3Deg3XBi1kTp79hcvg315e/Grey-Software-Website-Arsala?node-id=338%3A323)

Running Educational Programs

We're running collaboration programs with universities, through which students can gain practical software development experience by participating in an agile, open-source software development environment.

More details, especially those about our upcoming programs with UET Mardan and AJKU, can be found [here](https://docs.cloud.grey.software/s/7ZwhdT8iS#)


Developing Open Source Software

Our three main projects will be:

Open Governance

Market Analysis


Since our products shape our educational programs, their fate is tied. Therefore, we'll aim for excellence in both markets to form a positive feedback loop.

Open Source Software Products

Companies like [Mozilla](https://mozilla.org), [Gitlab](https://gitlab.com), and [VueStorefront](https://vuestorefront.io) are excellent examples of companies generating revenue through open source software.

Open Source Education

Programs like the [MLH Fellowship](https://fellowship.mlh.io) offer students the opportunity to attend remote internships with open source repositories. 

Notes


In 3 to 5 years, Grey Software will develop high-quality, trustworthy, transparent products and facilitate a collaborative development environment for learners to contribute and gain applied experience and practical skills. 

Grey Software believes in a world where everyone can contribute to a mission they believe in. 

Our users want to use high-quality software to enrich their life experience. They also want to trust that the programs they are running. Grey Software aims at developing a transparent relationship with its community through open administration, governance, and development. Our users will have a voice in shaping the future of the products that will become a part of their lives.
