Building an enterprise software company from scratch is challenging at the best of times. Every decision, no matter how trivial, feels like a make-or-break choice. Startups have to balance limited resources with the need to develop products, quickly find product market fit, create a go-to market engine, and build an operational engine. Cribl’s new program for startups in the observability, monitoring, and cybersecurity markets aims to make these decisions easier.

Accelerate Product Development with Cribl.Cloud

Cribl has built market-leading technology, from our observability pipeline and edge agent to our federated search offering. Startups accepted into the program can build their product with one or all of the products available in Cribl Cloud.

One of the core features of the Cribl for Startups program is the access to Cribl.Cloud. This includes a fixed number of credits available on a 12-month basis, allowing startups to use Cribl’s powerful data management tools like Cribl Edge, Stream, and Search. These resources are invaluable for companies in observability, cybersecurity, and monitoring spaces, helping them overcome data challenges and accelerate their product development.

Mentorship Sessions

Starting a company isn’t just about technology; it’s also about strategy, marketing, and understanding your target audience. That’s why the Cribl for Startups program offers mentorship sessions. Whether you need guidance on setting up a sales plan, navigating B2B marketing, or organizing your community for maximum effectiveness, Cribl has you covered. Their experienced staff will provide mentorship to help you make informed decisions and avoid common pitfalls on the startup journey.

Co-Marketing Opportunities

Collaboration can be a game-changer for startups. The Cribl for Startups program also includes co-marketing opportunities, allowing startups to work closely with Cribl. This can help amplify your reach and connect with Cribl’s customers and partners, opening doors to valuable relationships in the marketplace.

Selected Cribl for Startups members will also be invited to participate at CriblCon as part of our startup showcase. This presents a fantastic opportunity for startups to showcase their product to future customers and partners.

Who Should Apply?

The Cribl for Startups program is specifically designed for early-stage companies, typically in the seed to Series A funding stage, in the observability, monitoring, and cybersecurity markets.

The End Result

What can startups expect after a year in the Cribl for Startups program? This program is about more than just technical capabilities.
