      Your success is our business from Microsoft Accelerator London.

       

      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. But surely, our IT experts in, AI, BI, ML and blockchain will be a real plus to optimise your IT infrastructure and capture more value from your clients.  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: Appiness signed deals to launch in both South-Korea and Brazil.  For Firefly, 2016 has been a year of milestones, in November, Firefly raised the largest Series A investment in UK edtech, at £4.5 million.  This was followed by the release of Firefly 6 in December, the most significant update yet.  Earlier in the year, Firefly moved offices to accommodate planned expansion over 2017. 

       

      In 2016 True AI has engineered a neural network-based deep learning solution with unprecedented capability for customer support conversation automation.  They established links with future clients that include Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. 

       

      Finally, CoScale partnered with Docker and Red Hat to bring container technology to enterprise cloud environments.  They also signed up our first Fortune-500 customer and several local partners in the US and Europe, with many more to follow

      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.

      The technical infrastructure and support from Microsoft Accelerator was essential in improving our machine learning algorithms. During the program, we also established relationships with future customers and doubled in headcount.

      Joining London's Microsoft Accelerator has been fantastic for Pobble. The quality of mentorship and advice is absolutely top class and the atmosphere is one of understanding, collaboration and creativity. They have succeeded in taking our already lofty ambitions and blowing them up to a whole new level, whilst also helping us to create and implement practical plans to get there. I’d recommend to anyone.

      The Microsoft Accelerator program is a must for any start-up, Farmflo is benefiting immensely from the program in terms of mentoring, technology expertise, networking and having the ability to meet other likeminded start-ups

      After being on the Microsoft 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’.

      Dan Hubert | CEO & Founder, AppyParking

      The Microsoft Accelerator 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.
