OpenSB is not a company - it’s an online community with a shared bank account, funded by its members. Legally, OpenSB is an unincorporated non-profit. That's why we're using Open Collective Europe as our fiscal host.
Yes, donations from many European countries, as well as from the United States, can be tax-deductible.
The idea was born out of Krak - a skateboarding company some of us launched and managed for almost 10 years now. If you're curious to know more, you can find many details about the things we've built and launched for the skate community over the years in the Call to Adventure here.
You can think of it as an incubator for skateboarding ideas. OpenSB creates a common good for the whole community, truly owned by everyone.
OpenSB releases work for skateboarders. We build a multilayered experience across the skateboarding world, including offline-online bridges, visual, digital, and physical goods.
Feel free to contribute. We are also looking for all kinds of people to join our team, so please drop us a line if you think you can help us out.
OpenSB is not primarily motivated by profit, though it will eventually need to generate revenue to sustain its product and operations.
Easy. Just head up to the OpenSB page on Open Collective and join us as a member for 50€ a year.
Provide UBIs [Universal Basic Income] to 1,000 skateboarders.
Keep on pushin' 🛹 ✌️
