MS BizSpark One: Mobile, Online Services & Cloud Verticals Product Startups
Microsoft BizSpark One, seeks to accelerate the growth of high potential startups through a one-to-one relationship between Microsoft and the startup. In this unique, invite-only program, startups are paired with a dedicated relationship manager. This manager works with the startup to promote visibility, expand the startup’s network of investors and mentors, expose it to business opportunities, and develop cutting-edge applications.
In some countries, BizSpark One goes a step further by forming Advisory Committees to help address common startup needs such as access to leading seed and venture capital organizations.
Launched in November 2008, the BizSpark program is designed to help accelerate the success of entrepreneurs and early-stage startups globally. The program provides fast and easy access to current, full-featured software development tools and platforms, and a connection to over 2,000 BizSpark Network Partners – including university incubators, hosters, government agencies, investors, consultants and financial institutions – all with a common goal of supporting entrepreneurship. BizSpark startups also have the opportunity to achieve global visibility to an audience of potential investors, customers, and partners by profiling their company and posting offers and events in the BizSpark online networking hub, BizSpark Connect.
