Academic & Social Licenses

Free Subscriptions for Students and Positive Social Change Activists

What's this program about?

As a small indie start-up we know how difficult it is to get off the ground. Tackling huge challenges against seemingly invincible leviathans isn’t easy, but it is right and admirable. 

So, to give back to the community, we would like to offer students and those who are working towards positive social change a helping hand. We know some people struggle to afford the full Strongbox Pro license and I personally know what it’s like to be a broke student 🙂 

While Strongbox isn’t directly able to effect change on some of humanities greatest challenges, we know there are many wonderful organisations that can. We’d like to contribute in some way to that struggle. In particular, if your organisation is involved in tackling any of the items below, then we’d like to help.

  • Climate change
  • The proliferation of nuclear weapons
  • War
  • Poverty
  • Racism
  • Sexism
  • Bigotry
  • Fascism

So, if you think you qualify and are having trouble affording the regular Strongbox license, see below for the offer details and application form.

-Mark (Strongbox Founder)

PS. If you are already working in a governmental or military capacity/career we would ask you not to apply, particularly if you can already afford the license. We’re a small company looking to help out other smaller actors who are struggling to make the world more peaceful. If you work for the government or military of your country, and you feel you are doing great things, that’s fine, but ask yourself if you really need help from a small indie startup in this case.
