To refer an investor or accelerator, please introduce them by email to 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 come you don't offer credits for AWS, Segment etc. like Mixpanel does?

Because all of those are available if you just go to the company directly anyway. We've focused this program on benefits which are only available from PostHog, and are not merely curated from other freely available sources.
