Purchases support a small independent team

Beekeeper Studio is run by one person, with the help of a few part-time freelancers, and of course the Beekeeper Studio community.

Building quality software is hard work, especially for such a small team! Even so -
I'm committed to providing an open source version of Beekeeper Studio, even though it loses me money. Tech accessibility is really important, and not everyone can afford to pay for a database manager. Everyone deserves access to good software.

When you buy a copy of Beekeeper Studio you directly support my business, and our efforts in open source. Thank you! 🙏
