      Your success is our business.


      Don’t miss the opportunity to leverage Microsoft’s excellent routes to market, our cutting edge curriculum, fantastic mentors who provide 1:1 support, office space, and access to Microsoft’s customer and partner network. All that and more for zero equity. Yes – you heard that right – we don’t take any equity.


      Your success is our business. But don't take our word for it—check out this recent news from our cohorts: Caribu was mentioned in the recent Apple keynote, Dataloop raised £500k; Gateway landed an Xbox dashboard documentary about their new game; SAM Labs surpassed its Kickstarter target in less than 3 days. And that's just in the past few months...

      The Pitch


      After being on the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator Program for nearly six weeks now, I’ve realised that its name is a bit of an understatement - it should really be called something like ‘Rocket Ship Builders Yard’.

      Supercharge your startup


      If your startup is breaking new ground, disrupting an industry or doing something surprising and new, particularly in the areas of Internet of Things, FinTech, Games, machine learning, cybersecurity, enterprise solutions or consumer apps, you should consider throwing your hat into the ring.

      Microsoft Ventures is a networking powerhouse. In our first week after having our business plan reviewed we got awesome, highly connected mentors with decades of industry experience between them.
