Microsoft Accelerator Tel Aviv Launches 10th Cohort
Date Updated: Thursday, October 4, 2018
The Tel Aviv Accelerator is proud to announce the start of its 10th batch. The 11 remarkable startups that have joined the spring cohort boast an impressive average funding of $2.8 million.
Why are these Round A ready companies joining the Microsoft Accelerator? It’s their interest in Microsoft’s technology that prompted them to apply. This doesn’t come as a surprise. For decades Microsoft has been a leader in developer platforms and tools, and today is considered a pioneer in cutting-edge cloud technologies. Microsoft Accelerator is the right partner for startups looking to create a competitive edge through the use of these technologies.
During our 4-month program, the startups will be introduced to various teams that are part of the Microsoft R&D Center. With startups in verticals such as Cyber Security, eHealth, IoT, Chatbots, Fintech, and Marketing Intelligence, we leverage our different areas of expertise, connect them to product groups for collaboration, and help them upgrade their cloud to Azure.
It doesn’t stop there. 99% of global enterprises are Microsoft customers. The Tel Aviv accelerator furthers Microsoft’s partner-driven engagement strategy and leverages it to help startups scale. With our extensive business knowledge, we guide the startups throughout the program, provide them with hands-on mentorship, and 1:1 meetings with industry experts.
Microsoft’s involvement with the cohort doesn’t stop after their 4 months in the program, either. Our goal is to create long-term partnerships between these growing companies and Microsoft. After they graduate the program, our partnership continues through our success management program and customer access events.
In choosing our batch 10 companies, we carefully selected those we believe have enormous potential to not only “make it big,” but, with the right help, can make a huge impact.
I’d like to congratulate and welcome each of the 11 startups to the Tel Aviv Accelerator. We wish them the best of luck and are excited to start our journey together!
