Startup Success Stories
Frequently Asked Questions
How is the Linode Startup Program different from other programs?
How many businesses are accepted in the program?
Rather than set limits to the number of members, we are relentless in making sure we find the right members for the program. However, from time-to-time, we do fill up. In those times, we can add you to our waiting list for first consideration for when the program becomes available again.
How much can I expect to save by being a part of the program?
Linode Rise provides a scaled discount based on qualifications throughout the three years of the program.
Year 1: Start with a minimum of $500 in cloud infrastructure and then earn as much as 100% off list price capped at $10,000/month in free credit.
Year 2: As much as 50% off list price.
Year 3: As much as 25% off list price.
How long does the Linode Startup Program run?
The program runs for three years, but members can leave at any time. Additionally, after those three years, alumni of the program continue to receive product discounts.
If I don’t meet all qualifications or what Linode looks for, what other options are there for me?
Please apply if your business is less than 5 years old. We have other programs that we can potentially direct you to that may be more appropriate for your needs.
Can my business be headquartered anywhere in order to be eligible?
Linode is a US-based company, and we are happy to work with any businesses in any country that the US government allows.
