The Open Application Network

Solving the unintended consequences of platform economies.

What Are Open Apps?

The OAN is a public infrastructure that creates a new design space for Open Applications. Open Apps are programs that put users back in control and are universally accessible across platforms. Using Open Apps, developers can hook into existing platforms like Uber, Shopify, Twitch and create new breakthrough experiences.

Pooled Funding for Shared Objectives.

Crowd-source funding for common needs across your ecosystem. Imagine pooling funds for gig economy workers’ health insurance or supporting a young entrepreneur.


Your Sharable Digital Reputation

Add a digital reputation to your app that can be leveraged by other apps. Why should your reputation from ridesharing not be used for ordering food or booking a weekend getaway?
