What is Retool for Startups?

Retool for Startups is a program designed to help early-stage startups build critical internal tools. Eligible startups get 12 months of free Retool credits (up to $1200 total value).

How can I use my free Retool credits?

You can apply your free credits toward our Team and Business plans to access advanced features. Retool is billed per seat, so you’ll consume credits based on your total monthly users.

What are the criteria to qualify?

  • Your company was founded less than 5 years ago

  • You’ve raised less than $10M in funding

Are there other benefits?

Yes. We’ve partnered with companies like HubSpot, Segment, DigitalOcean, and Brex to offer startup discounts for their software — sign up for details and eligibility requirements.

Do my Retool credits expire?

You have up to one year to use your Retool credits. At the end of one year, you’ll have the option to stay on your existing plan or go back to the Free plan.
