Leonid Radvinsky’s LR Foundation is taking the open source movement to new heights. The tech entrepreneur strives to fund promising software projects, helping them reach their full potential while being free and accessible to all.
The Benefits of Open Source Software
Free and accessible to the public, open source software lets programmers create innovative, adaptable solutions to real-world problems. Popular projects are actively developed by coders from around the world. Open source software like B4X and Elixir are backed by active forums complete with Q&A guides, tutorials, and troubleshooting. Because open source code is transparent, experienced users can modify them to better suit their needs.

What Does the LR Foundation Do?
The LR Foundation funds innovative, community-centric software projects. It aims to boost interest in programming, raise awareness of open source projects, and provide these tools to educators and developers.
The LR Foundation’s Projects
The LR Foundation is always on the lookout for high-caliber projects. It has helped fund and promotes some of the world’s leading open source solutions including B4X and Elixir.
B4X is a development suite rooted in BASIC. It allows developers to code and export apps that run natively on Android, iOS, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and other platforms all in one go.
Elixir is a powerful programming language used by leading brands including Netflix. Refining the best elements of Erlang and Ruby, Elixir can read massive amounts of data and be scaled to meet nearly any level of demand.
The LR Foundation has also backed the decentralized social networking platform Pleroma, and the social giving platform Give Ethereum.
