Global Program Fosters the Success of Innovative Startups Committed to Microsoft’s Platform Technologies
Nassau, Bahamas (PRWEB) December 14, 2011, Cloud Carib, a cloud computing start-up, today announced that it has been selected to join the Microsoft BizSpark Program. The BizSpark Program is a global program designed to accelerate the success of early stage Startups by connecting them to Network Partners: active members of the global software ecosystem who can provide mentorship, guidance and resources to BizSpark Startups. BizSpark creates an ongoing, mutually beneficial relationship between Microsoft Corp., Startups and Network Partners.
Developing cloud applications demands advanced tools and flexible deployment models, and we are very excited to be selected for BizSpark. We are looking forward to utilizing Microsoft Cloud tools towards new applications and we are thrilled to be given this opportunity”, said Damir Lukic, Sales manager at Cloud Carib.
Microsoft is committed to helping entrepreneurs to transform their ambitions into sustainable, dynamic businesses and to foster innovation and entrepreneurialism. To this end, the BizSpark Program provides Startups with leading technology, business and technical support, and market and networking opportunities at a time when they are most valuable and least affordable—during their first three years, with no upfront costs and minimal requirements.
BizSpark gives Startups fast and easy access to Microsoft’s current full-featured development tools, platform technologies as well as production licenses to bring to market innovative and interoperable solutions for the next generation of user experiences.
To be eligible for the Microsoft BizSpark Program, Startups must be actively engaged in development of a software-based product or service that is a core piece of their business model, have been in business less than three years at the time of enrollment, and have less than USD$1M in annual revenue. Startups may enroll for the program by obtaining an enrollment code from a designated BizSpark Network Partner.
