One of the biggest problems founders face is getting the technical advice they need to help build a successful product. There are significant time and financial costs to understanding the best infrastructure for your startup, even for the most advanced dev teams.
Through Founders Hub, startups can pair with expert Microsoft engineers at any stage to get advice on transitioning to and using Azure services, with topics including the latest in AI, choosing the right products, optimizing infrastructure, reducing costs, boosting performance, and road mapping.
Advisory for understanding which Azure services are right for you
Our Startup Technical Advisory gives startups access to an extensive pool of technical advisors drawn from across the Microsoft ecosystem. These advisors make up a curated team to help with technical scenarios that are both unique to you and common among other startups.
Looking to understand the Microsoft stack? Through Azure Pairing, startups will get access to a Microsoft engineer who can provide an overview of products and how they can be used. Gain insight into migrating to Azure, implementation, project management, and more to figure out which Azure solutions best suit your needs.
Expert engineering help on architecture, design, and implementation
