Meet our open source partners!

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Is my project too small to qualify?

    At this time, we are only partnering with large open source organizations and projects that are well-known within the wider open source community. If you have thousands of community members and users, or more, we encourage you to apply.

    If you are part of a smaller community, we encourage you to apply to our GitLab for Open Source program. Through this program, qualifying open source projects can get access to our top tiers for free.

  1. How's this program different from the Contributing Organizations Program?

    The Contributing Organizations Program is designed to recognize and support organizations who are making a sustained commitment to contributing to GitLab. This Open Source Partnership program is aimed at building relationships with prominent open source communities and engaging in co-marketing initiatives.
