OCV Public Handbook

🌟
Open Core Ventures (OCV) is handbook first and public by default. Our handbook is continuously updated to reflect the current status of operations and is subject to change. OCV founders and team members should check the handbook frequently for the most up-to-date information. We document our policies, processes, and points of view in our public handbook so people outside of OCV can benefit from it. Avoid unstructured content when contributing to the handbook.
‼️
This is a public handbook. Do not add personal or confidential information. For security reasons, we do not name our internal systems, vendors, or list direct contact details. This document should not be relied on for legal or investment advice.
