Our goal is to make GitLab the best place for open source projects to thrive at scale. Apart from offering our top tiers for free to qualifying open source projects, we have also partnered with some of the world's most popular open source projects to work together on achieving this goal.
The GitLab Open Source Partners program seeks to build relationships with prominent members of our open source ecosystem. Through our partnership, we aim to gain insight to help us build a better product and navigate the challenges of being an open core, for-profit company. We also aim to create greater outreach through co-marketing and special initiatives.
