We want to support the start-ups and indie developers that are at the heart of innovation – just like Qt 25 years ago.  

Due to your popular demand, we are offering special Qt licenses for small businesses. The Qt Small Business license has all the Qt features for mobile, desktop, and embedded development for 499 USD per year.

What is so excellent about this offering is that you can distribute your applications to all our supported platforms (excluding MCUs, which is sold separately).  It entitles you to the full usage of Qt and the freedom to package and sell your product under the terms and conditions of a full commercial Qt license with support limited to installation issues.
