Calling all UK technology startups - we’ve got something here that we reckon you’ll be interested in.
Microsoft Ventures

That ‘something’ is the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator. In essence it could help take you and your business to the next level. Here’s the lowdown on what it’s about:

The Microsoft Ventures Accelerator is based in London and is a three month programme aimed at helping early stage startup that are involved with Cloud, Internet and mobile. You will be provided with a workspace in central London, free tools, top quality mentorship and training workshops to help you develop and grow your business.

As if that’s not enough to make you sit up and take notice – lets’ take a look at a few other things that are on offer with the programme.

As well as the amazing workspace in London, you will get:
  • Free software and development tools via Microsoft’s Bizspark programme.
  • Free access to the Windows Azure cloud platform.
  • Ongoing mentorship from top executives and technologists.
  • Technical mentorship from Microsoft’s technical evangelists and developers.
  • Access to third party professionals who offer free legal, accounting, marketing or business support.
  • Ongoing education and training on how to build great products and services.

There will also be opportunities for networking during the programme as talks will be given by partners, advisors and mentors – successful entrepreneurs, executives and investors – on a variety of technology and business issues.

The programme aims to maximise your opportunity and develop your company – so when you finish the Microsoft Venture Accelerator you’ll have something in hand to take to investors and get that much needed funding.

The Microsoft folk also want to ensure that participating startups have a continuation plan in place. When the programme finishes, there will be an organized demo day – this will see potential investors, angel investors and venture capitalists from the UK and US coming along to see your product or service and listen to you pitch.
