Meet Alex Cojocaru - the Co-founder and CEO of Licenseware! He's on a mission to revolutionize the IT and management tooling industry with his open app ecosystem that makes it more cost-effective and accessible.

With the help of two local VCs, Alex secured not one, but two funding rounds of 120K at 1 million evaluation and 500K respectively. His focus on building a sustainable organization and realizing the full potential of his venture through a public listing is what drives him every day.
What's more, as a successful investor himself, Alex provides invaluable advice and exciting opportunities for those looking to invest.

What is an Open App Ecosystem?
An open app ecosystem is a system in which developers and users have the freedom to create, distribute, and use software applications without excessive restrictions or limitations. In an open app ecosystem, developers have the ability to create applications using open standards and APIs, and are not required to obtain permission from a central authority before distributing their applications.
It is typically built on an open platform, such as an open-source operating system or a web-based platform that provides open APIs for developers to access. This allows developers to create applications that are compatible with a wide range of devices and platforms, and allows users to access a diverse range of applications from different developers.
Overall, an open app ecosystem is a model that fosters innovation, collaboration, and user choice. By encouraging the creation of new applications and services, and by making it easy for users to access and use them, an open app ecosystem can help to drive the growth of the digital economy and promote social and economic development.
