Microsoft has announced a new program intended to help startups accelerate their growth and sell their products. Called Microsoft for Startups (opens in new tab), the program will see Microsoft commit more than $500 million over the next two years to provide access to technology and new community spaces, along with joint sales engagements.
Through the program, Microsoft says it will offer co-selling resources to startups in order to help them sell their cloud solutions to enterprise organizations. Startups will also get access to specific technical support and development tools, along with free Azure credits. From Microsoft:
Microsoft for Startups is bolstered by Microsoft's other startup efforts, including Microsoft ScaleUp (opens in new tab) and Microsoft Ventures. New Microsoft Reactor (opens in new tab) spaces are also set to open up in London, Sydney, Tel Aviv, Berlin, Shanghai, and Beijing over the next month, Microsoft says. These join the existing Reactor spaces in Redmond, Seattle, San Francisco, and New York.
