Esri has a program for you.
Was your business founded less than three years ago?
Is it currently generating less than US$1 million annually?
Does it build software or platform-as-a-service products?
If you answered yes to the preceding three questions, you may be eligible to participate in the Esri Emerging Business Program (EBP), a three-year program that provides eligible up-and-coming businesses with free ArcGIS platform technology to integrate spatial functionality within their products. As a member, you will receive software, tools, support, and opportunities that will help your business succeed. More than 150 businesses are currently in the program.
The program’s key benefits are access to an ArcGIS Online organizational subscription, an ArcGIS for Server license, and the Esri Developer Network package, training, support, and maintenance.
EBP members also have opportunities to attend and exhibit at Esri conferences and comarket with Esri business teams. More than 60 EBP members attended the 2015 Esri Partner Conference and Developer Summit in Palms Springs, California, in March.
At the 2015 Esri User Conference, businesses enrolled in the program will be exhibiting products and networking with others in the EBP at the Startup Zone, located on the EXPO floor.
