Ruud de Jonge, Director Western Europe at Microsoft BizSpark, has a clear view on why they established a partnership with Startupweekend Amsterdam. “Startup Weekend is an established international organization. The team have a raft of knowledge and experience plus access to great mentors when it comes to supporting the teams to start a company in only 54 hours.”
Just 6 days to go until the weekend – a great chance for us to introduce you to our awesome partner and premier sponsor of the weekend: Microsoft BizSpark!
Microsoft BizSpark is a global program that helps software start-ups succeed by giving them access to a network of over 2,000 partners, connecting start-ups with investors, advisors, hosts, business training and software development tools. BizSpark contributes to Startup Weekend Amsterdam by supplying mentors with extensive knowledge on cloud, mobile & UX design and of course the software package that comes with the BizSpark Program.
We at Startup Weekend Amsterdam are very enthusiastic about the partnership. BizSpark is a fantastic program with an admirable track record and a great network in the international start-up scene. We’re proud to be part of this network and very pleased to be able to work with their tech savvy mentors. In addition, due to Microsoft BizSpark’s involvement, our teams will be able to use MS software solutions which will prove invaluable to the fast-paced product development of the Startup Weekend teams.
