Our Inspiration

People all over the world are turning to R, Python, and other open-source programming languages, to make sense of data.

Inspired by innovators in science, education, government, and industry, RStudio develops free and open tools for R, and enterprise-ready professional products for teams who use both R and Python, to scale and share their work.

Today, millions of people download and use RStudio open-source products in their daily lives while thousands of organizations and individuals, who have the need and ability to pay for our commercial products on premises or online, help us to sustain this work. It is exciting to consider that we are helping many participate in global economies that increasingly reward data literacy.

Our Mission

RStudio’s mission is to create free and open-source software for data science, scientific research, and technical communication. We do this to enhance the production and consumption of knowledge by everyone, regardless of economic means, and to facilitate collaboration and reproducible research, both of which are critical to the integrity and efficacy of work in science, education, government, and industry.

RStudio also produces RStudio Team, a modular platform of commercial software products that give organizations the confidence to adopt R, Python and other open-source data science software at scale - for the benefit of many people, to leverage large amounts of data, to integrate with existing enterprise systems, platforms, and processes, or be compliant with security practices and standards - along with online services to make it easier to learn and use them over the web.

Together, RStudio’s open-source software and commercial software form a virtuous cycle: The adoption of open-source data science software at scale in organizations creates demand for RStudio’s commercial software; and the revenue from commercial software, in turn, enables deeper investment in the open-source software that benefits everyone.

Our Commitment

RStudio believes that corporations should be run for the benefit of all of their stakeholders including employees, customers, and the community at large. Consequently, RStudio is a Delaware Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) and a Certified B Corporation®, which means that our open-source mission is codified into our charter, and that our corporate decisions must balance the interests of community, customers, employees, and shareholders. Certified B Corporations® (B Corps™) are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.

RStudio currently spends over 50% of its engineering resources on open-source software and leads contributions to over 250 open-source projects, targeting a broad range of areas including the RStudio IDE; infrastructure libraries for R; numerous packages and tools to streamline data manipulation, exploration and visualization, modeling, and machine learning; and integration with external data sources. RStudio also sponsors or contributes to more than a dozen open-source initiatives led by others, and invests in Ursa Labs to support the Apache Arrow project, a cross-language development platform for in-memory data aiming to maximize the benefits of modern compute hardware.

RStudio measures its public benefit by utilizing the non-profit B Lab®’s “Impact Assessment”, a rigorous assessment of a company’s impact on its workers, customers, community, and environment. RStudio is pleased to report that it has met the B Corporation certification requirements set by the B Lab. The Certification process uses credible, comprehensive, transparent, and independent standards of social and environmental performance.

Further details are available in our annual public benefit report at https://www.rstudio.com/about/pbc-report and at https://bcorporation.net/directory/rstudio.

RStudio believes that the best way to pursue its mission is to operate as an independent company. As a PBC, we have the ownership and governance structure required to ensure that we can remain independent over the long term, with the support of our customers, employees, and the community.
