Madeleine Weightman, The Work Crowd
The Work Crowd have just submitted their application for Microsoft Ventures Accelerator London program! Looking at what Microsoft Ventures offers their cohorts in terms of support, infrastructure and on going guidance without taking an equity stake is truly phenomenal and real testament to Microsoft giving back and supporting the start-up community here in London. London's start up community is re-defining the way we both work but also the future with innovation. This wouldn't be possible without the on going support and investment from companies like Microsoft Ventures!
Much how AudioTribe helps artists find a route to market through our music label partners, Microsoft Ventures makes sure great ideas find market relevance by providing expertise, technology and a collaborative environment.
Kevin Haughan, Sam Labs
Great programme. Would recommend to any start up with big ideas and big visions looking for a leg up to find their entry point to market and gain visibility among relevant groups. We entered as total unknowns, and left with over 800 Kickstarter backers and extensive press coverage.
Hashim Ruan, ScholTech Inc.
Every entrepreneur out there should try it. Even if you aren't one and you have a great idea. Go for it!
