Microsoft for Startups

"Partnering with Microsoft for Startups has been a dream come true. Quite literally we would not have been able to launch the accelerator without the support of Microsoft and so it's really impressive to me that an organization the size of Microsoft can work with a company the size of ours and really make a difference in the way that they have."

"Since the beginning of STATION F, our goal has been to provide the best programs and resources for startups. As a leader in AI, Microsoft has been the ideal partner to run our program in Artificial Intelligence with the Microsoft AI Factory. We've been pleased to see many great startups come out of this program, including the first startup to ever be acquired at STATION F,"

Roxanne Varza

Director, STATION F

Microsoft has been a long-time partner of Techstars and we continually hear from founders how valuable the partnership is by providing access to products and services as well as to startup-focused resources to leverage expertise and networks."
