After more than a decade as professional fundraisers, Tim and James decided that they wanted to do more actual fundraising. So they quit their jobs and set Open up in Tim’s back bedroom.
The idea was to bring the right people together to change the world. And because the right people often work for themselves or other agencies, that meant creating a company that was happy to collaborate and share – hence the name.
Since then, Open has grown rapidly – due in no small part to our pioneering work in taking fundraising into mobile phones. There are now about 50 of us in the office and plenty of specialist partners who we work with when we need their skills.
Our clients seem to like what we do. You might too.
