Start-Up Plan

Qt for Application Development for your small business

Apply now

Fueling Your Application Development

We want to support the start-ups and indie developers that are at the heart of innovation, just like Qt was 20 something years ago. With this in mind, we have leveled out the playing field for small teams and growing businesses by providing an extended evaluation period of Qt for up to 3 named developers.

What’s the catch? No catch and no strings attached. The extended evaluation period contains all the same technical features as our commercial licenses do.

The extended evaluation period is available for companies with an annual revenue of less than $100.000 (including funding). The yearly revenue must be reported to The Qt Company. In case the company grows its revenue past this threshold, all developer licenses will then convert to normal term licenses with regular pricing.

We look forward to seeing what innovation is born from your use of Qt in the months and years to come!

How do we define “start-up”?

You qualify as a small business or “start-up” if your annual revenue is no more than $100,000.

Case Stories


“Using Qt and QML allows us to dramatically cut our development time and costs. All of our engineers work on one code base rather than needing specialists for each platform. The Start-up licensing plan is perfect for us as we are still in the investment/growth phase, giving us the full power of Qt for Application Development product with a commercial license.” – Kevin Kavanagh, CEO, Hiri
