  • What are the major differences between the startup account and the regular Free Tier account?

    The startup program is uniquely designed for startups at any stage, offering specific benefits that support businesses as they scale their technology. The startup SKU offers free credits and a 70% discount for two years. The Free Tier account does not. The startup program also offers additional benefits, including mentoring, go-to-market support, and more resources than the Free Tier account.

    We consider a startup to be any company—B2B or B2C, in any industry or technology space—that has not yet been acquired or gone public.

  • Can anyone sign up for a startup account from the portal?

    Yes. If you consider yourself a startup, you’re welcome to sign up.

  • What if I do not have a startup, can I still apply?

    We offer a separate program for researchers associated with academic and research institutions, Oracle for Research.

  • What is “Credits to Scale” and how does the “buy one get two” promotion work?

    Credits to Scale (PDF) is an opportunity for startups to decide how much they want to spend on cloud and get two times their chosen amount in free cloud credits. This pay-to-earn promotion allows startups to take advantage of cloud they’re already using while getting free cloud in return—all with a 70% discount.

    Startups simply choose the amount they want to use, and, once that is used up, we place two times that amount in their account so they can continue to scale on Oracle Cloud.

    How it Works.

    • Startups tell us how much they want to spend on cloud via the Startup Portal
    • They get approved and continue building on Oracle Cloud infrastructure
    • After they’ve used the chosen amount, we’ll double it in free cloud credits
    • This process can be repeated up to two times
  • Is there a Customer Success Manager (CSM) assigned to startup accounts?

    CSM representatives are not assigned to startups, but startups get access to an exclusive online Startup Portal for on-demand resources, mentoring, marketing, and more.

  • Will I get access to Oracle's 430,000 enterprise customers when I sign up?

    You’ll have the opportunity to access market connections to customers, venture capitalists, and events, as well as the potential to unlock media exposure, as you progress through the program.

    Startups become eligible by completing specific requirements, including the use of Oracle products and services. You can access the qualification requirements in the Market Connect (PDF) section of the Startup Portal after signing up. These benefits apply to new participants in Oracle for Startups and not current Oracle customers.

  • How does the Market Connect process work?

    Market Connect eligibility requires startups to hit key milestones.

    • Submit a customer case study
    • Submit reference architecture
    • Submit an integration strategy, if applicable

    Once these steps are completed, business development managers will connect startups with the Market Connect lead for their region. Startups will discuss their current sales, customers, use case, targeted industry verticals, and the technological aspects of their offerings with the Market Connect team.

    The Market Connect lead will then, as appropriate, connect startups to opportunities for business expansion with Oracle Key Account Directors, analysts, events teams, and more.

  • Can I say Oracle is partnering with my startup if I join?

    You are welcome to share that you’re part of the Oracle for Startups program and are using Oracle technologies. You can use our logo via the Media Kit once you’re enrolled in the program.
