Organic Software Directory

What is organic software?

The term was coined by @pketh in 2023 in his blog post “In Search of Organic Software”. TL;DR1: Businesses change when they take VC money.

Certainly, there were already terms like "Indie" and "Bootstrapped", but what do they really mean? The "organic" label for software means something specific:

Organic Software is software that...

  1. Has no external pressure (eg. from funding sources) to chase funding rounds, grow unsustainably, or to get acquired2
  2. Has a clear pricing page, discloses their sources of funding, and sources of revenue
  3. Doesn't make majority revenue from selling user data to third parties3

  • 2 bootstrapping, crowdfunding, grants, and angel investment are okay
