We are currently accepting applications for our next Microsoft Ventures Accelerator in Seattle dedicated to Digital Work. This cohort will focus on startups building scalable productivity applications, cloud-centric software platforms and enterprise-grade solutions to help people get more done. Startups can apply now for the Digital Work Accelerator.
Come learn about the new Seattle class, meet local startups in the space, speak to folks from Microsoft Ventures and get all of your important questions answered. Food and beverages will be served.
The Accelerator will kick off in March in Seattle. We are accepting applications now and closes on January 30, 2015. This cohort will offer spots to 10-15 startups exclusively selected to participate in the program and will conclude with a Demo Day event in July. We are encouraging startups from around the world with an itch to change the way we work to apply for this second cohort.
As a platform and productivity company, Microsoft is uniquely positioned to help startups succeed. We firmly believe that in a mobile first, cloud first world, startups have a huge opportunity to revolutionize the workplace with smart, powerful and connected solutions.
Microsoft’s goal is to help startups foster exciting new ideas by providing mentorship, technology and expertise to build global companies, without taking equity. The startups that have graduated from our accelerators have seen great success, with 80% receiving an average funding of $1.9M (USD) within a year from graduation. 16 startups have also had exits with some of the top companies in the industry.
