We ask companies and individuals to fill out a questionnaire and send it to us in order to run a verification process. After the verification, we reserve the right to decline an application. Only those who meet the criteria for the program will be able to get a Startup license as our special offer.
No, the Startup license is not perpetual. It is for one year only. In a year, when the license expires, you can buy a normal perpetual license to continue using DHTMLX in your product. You can get acquainted with the Startup license terms following the link.
When a Startup license expires, we will offer you to purchase a perpetual DHTMLX license to continue using DHTMLX components in your application. The perpetual license gives you the right to use DHTMLX forever. It will also grant you access to the latest updates and tech support for the following year. If your product based on DHTMLX is still in the pre-launch stage in a year or you need more time to monetize, you can buy a Startup license for another year. Otherwise, without a proper license, you will lose the right to use DHTMLX in your product.
Under the startup program, we offer three DHTMLX components: Gantt, Scheduler, and Suite. You can choose one, two or all three components and purchase their Startup license at a 70% discount from the original price. The discount is calculated based on the price of the license for 3 developers and one SaaS project.
