GitHub is a platform focused on empowering the developer tools ecosystem. This partner program provides a simple framework in which we can engage with developer tools companies who are building software on top of GitHub and are ready to start selling into the enterprise.
Benefits of partnering
We're focused on building relationships with partners that will help them grow into a leader in their space. Our benefits are focused on elevating their service as a premier tool in the developer ecosystem.
Here's a condensed version of our benefits:
- Dedicated co-marketing with GitHub in the enterprise
- Brought into our enterprise sales opportunities
- Coordinated Sales training with the GitHub sales teams
- Preferred sponsorship opportunities at our conferences
- Free GitHub Enterprise (on-prem) licenses for your team

Note: There is no application fee or program fee.
Requirements for application
