We've decided to make less money: We've slashed our pricing for session replay. They're now more than 50% cheaper for most customers.

How do I apply?

Just sign up to a paid plan in PostHog (you're only charged for usage) and then fill in this form. We will review and apply the credit if you're eligible. If you're accepted into the program, we will notify you by email.

Who's eligible?

Your company needs to be less than 2 years old and have raised less than $5m funding. You need to have signed up any time from Jan 1st 2023 onwards.

How can I refer another startup?

Users accepted into Posthog for Startups can refer other customers to unlock $5,000 of extra credit for both parties. This referral program is currently only open to users who have been accepted into PostHog for Startups.

To refer someone, simply tell them to apply as normal and to specify your company name in the application form. We'll review and issue an additional $5,000 of PostHog credit to both you, and them.

There are currently no limits on how many startups can be referred into the program successfully.

How can I refer an investor or accelerator?

Users accepted into Posthog for Startups can refer their investors or accelerators in order to unlock extra credit worth up to an additional $50,000.

To refer an investor or accelerator, please introduce them by email to joe@posthog.com. We will then discuss partnership opportunities and, if we proceed, will issue an additional $50,000 of PostHog credit to your account.

I signed up before this deal launched, can I still get it?

Yes, but only if you signed up after Jan 1st 2023. If your startup meets the eligibility criteria but you signed up to PostHog before Jan 1st, we won't apply the credits but are still happy to enroll you in the rest of the program.

Can I get this deal if I'm part of YC?

We have a separate deal for YC folks - check out Bookface. No, they don't stack!

What if I go over the $50k limit?

At that point you can move onto another PostHog plan.

What happens at the end of the 12 months?

At that point you can move onto another PostHog plan. You'll continue to be considered part of the program in terms of invites to office hour events, and other perks.

How do I get the DigitalOcean infrastructure credit?

To claim your infra credit, simply sign up to the DigitalOcean Hatch program and cite PostHog as your Hatch partner. We'll send you a reminder and further instructions by email when you're accepted into PostHog for Startups.

What level of customer support do I get?

PostHog is run by a small team and, as such, we're only able to offer support to paying customers. Organizations which are part of our startup plan are therefore not elligible for high priority customer support, and only qualify for normal priority and community support. This is still the case even if you apply your credits towards the Teams plan.

"Our portfolio companies rely on analytics to optimise their products. Understanding user behaviours through platforms like PostHog is mission-critical. The insights it provides are invaluable for founders.”
