Genesis and Mission

KPF's goal is to accelerate the introduction of innovative products that sustainably and affordably enhance quality of life, and embody beauty and simplicity

Our approach arises from:
  1. growing importance of open source software, and collaboration in all fields
  2. increasing use of prizes to catalyze significant advances
  3. a focus on ease of use and value to the customer
  4. concern for sustainability and the environment
The Free Software Foundation, the X Prize Foundation, Apple Computer, and Tesla Motors have been drivers of these trends.  

KPF expects to employ and advance state-of-the-art collaborative working environments, and advance fairness in compensation for contributors regardless of race, age or gender.
