First, the people who contribute to webpack, do so for the love of open source, love for our users and ecosystem, and most importantly, pushing the web forward together. Because of our Open Collective model for funding and transparency, we are able to funnel support and funds through contributors, dependent projects, and the contributor and core teams. But what is the return on the investment?

You can support webpack as a company by:
You can encourage your developers to contribute to the ecosystem, open sourcing tools, loaders, and plugins for webpack, and helping increase our CI/CD infrastructure.
We want you to work with us, one of the top NPM libraries, to improve your product!
