You can create a new organization by either setting up a new organization or converting an existing personal account into an organization.

Organizations are great for businesses and large projects that need multiple owners and administrators. For more information on how organizations can help you collaborate on a project, see our article on the difference between user accounts and organizations.

There are several ways to create an organization.

Create a new organization

When you create a new organization from scratch, it doesn't have any books associated with it. At any time, members of the organization with write permissions can add new books, or transfer existing books.

Convert your existing personal account into an organization

If you want all of the repositories in your current account to be part of the organization, then you can convert the account to an organization.
