Microsoft BizSpark is a global program designed to help accelerate the success of early stage startups.

By joining BizSpark, Startups get:

o Software:  fast and easy access to Microsoft’s current full-featured development tools, platform technologies, and production licenses of server products for immediate use in developing and bringing to market innovative and interoperable solutions with no upfront costs and minimal requirements. Startups will also get access to the community technology preview (CTP) of the Microsoft Azure Services Platform.

o Support:  professional technical support from Microsoft (MSDN) and community support from BizSpark Network Partners around the world who provide a wide range of support resources for software startups.  Network Partners are incubators, investors, advisors, government agencies and hosters who are vested in software-fueled innovation and entrepreneurship.

o Visibility:  global visibility to an audience of potential investors, clients and partners.  Startups will have the opportunity to complete a profile in the online Startup directory, BizSparkDB, on the Microsoft Startup Zone which highlights promising companies from around the world, including “BizSpark Startup of the Day”.

Startups get access to BizSpark either through a Network Partner (e.g. TiE, NVCA, select Venture Capitalists, and over 300+ entrepreneurial-focused organizations) or through Microsoft BizSpark Program Leads (called “BizSpark Champs”). Startups can find both at
