Red Hat Innovate Benefits

Red Hat® Innovate offers what no other ISV development program can—partnership with the world's leading open source software company.

Check out all the potential benefits of participating in the program.

As a Red Hat partner, you'll get access to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux® operating system and Red Hat JBoss® Middleware subscription benefits for development, testing, quality assurance, and customer demos. This includes award-winning Red Hat support and no software or program lock-in.

Get coordinated access to Red Hat's product management and engineering teams. Learn how Red Hat builds its enterprise offerings and how we plan and contribute to the upstream projects we participate in and maintain.

  • Get your applications listed in the Red Hat software catalog, Red Hat's searchable online database.

  • Enhance your visibility for potential venture capital funding.
Gain worldwide exposure by participating in a joint customer success story with Red Hat. Our experienced Corporate Communications team writes and publishes the success story for you. As a partner, you can learn more and apply to participate in this program via the Red Hat Partner Center.
We'll select a few partners to be introduced to prospective enterprise clients through Red Hat's client account management team. Our clients range from small businesses to Fortune 500 customers and governments around the globe. The right introduction at the right time can make a huge impact to an early software startup's success.
Partners can market applications that support Red Hat technologies, like Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, with our Red Hat Advanced partner logo. Approved partners may access logos through the Red Hat Partner Center.
Partners receive special information about events like the Red Hat Summit. Opportunities might include booth sponsorship, speaking engagements, or co-marketing initiatives.
