Hyoshin Nam:

OSGeo is an international organization with members all over the world
(including a wonderful local chapter in Korea <http://www.osgeo.kr>). OSGeo
does not have a physical location in Boston, although we have some of our
members who live there and may be able to talk with you.

Please note that many of our software projects are developed in a
distributed fashion, allowing your software developers and system managers
to participate remotely. As an example I work on a project GeoServer
<http://geoserver.org> which has several opportunities for community
development <http://geoserver.org/devel/> an email list for developer
communication and a video chat every couple of weeks, and the last Friday
of each month we devote to fixing bugs.

If you do wish to talk about open source software licenses we have an
committee <https://www.osgeo.org/about/committees/incubation/> (once again
with an email list <https://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/incubator>)
which helps development teams choose a license and set up their projects.

Finally our software foundation occasionally enters into
strategic partnership with industry development groups such as yours. We
have a page on partners and friends <https://www.osgeo.org/partners/> you
can look at for examples. Partners have a formal agreement, friends have a
history of collaboration but no formal agreement in place.
