101companies is a community project in computer science (or software science) with the objective of developing a free, structured, wiki-accessible knowledge resource including an open-source repository for different stakeholders with interests in software technologies, software languages, and technological spaces; notably: teachers and learners in software engineering or software languages as well as software developers, software technologists, and ontologists. The present paper introduces the 101companies Project. In fact, the present paper is effectively a call for contributions to the project and a call for applications of the project in research and education.
