Collabora is a global private company founded by Robert McQueen and Philippe Kalaf based in Cambridge, United Kingdom, with offices in Cambridge and Montreal. Collabora's mission is to accelerate the adoption of open source technologies, methodologies and philosophy. It does this by providing consultancy to companies who are deploying open source technologies in their products, by providing its own open source based products and through knowledge sharing activities such as training.
Collabora's initial focus was Instant Messaging (IM), Voice over IP (VoIP) and videoconferencing technologies, but the company has since expanded its offering to include general multimedia, mobile web technologies, collaboration infrastructure, automotive infotainment platforms, graphics optimization, multimedia interoperability & productivity software.
