Microsoft for Startups Introduction and Workshop Day

About this event

The University is hosting the UK tour of Microsoft for Startups. Alumni with high potential tech scaleup or start-up businesses are very welcome to join the free workshop to find out more about this established programme that offers tailored support for B2B and B2B2C startups in any sector. Statistics show that companies who have been through the programme have a 69% chance of having a thriving business three years after taking part.

Benefits of the programme include free software to scale-up seamlessly (up to $250,000 Azure credits), 1:1 mentorship, access to global enterprise clients and channel partners and a VC network. Following graduation and co-sell approval, startups can sell inside Microsoft’s two marketplaces (Appsource and Azure Marketplace) as well as connecting to Microsoft’s global sales force. The programme is equity-free - Microsoft does not demand a stake in the companies it nurtures.

The event takes place at Loughborough University Science and Enterprise Park on Thursday 2 May. In addition to an overview of the programme, optional 1:1 sessions with the Microsoft team are available to discuss key topics including company mission, value proposition, current and future markets, scalable go to market model, social media and sales plan.

Register for the Startups Introduction Workshop.
