Microsoft Ventures is a global initiative to help entrepreneurs build great companies. We work with startups at every stage of maturity to provide the tools, resources, and expertise they need to succeed. The initiative is broad-based, and includes a community program, accelerators, and a seed fund. Our approach helps startups scale their business, bring innovative services to market and reach new customers.

Our community program provides entrepreneurs with low-friction access to local mentors, technology and support through Microsoft BizSpark, network partners and events that help new companies with a broad array of resources. More than 85,000 startups have benefitted from our broad support of the global startup ecosystem through BizSpark.

Microsoft Ventures Accelerators enable top entrepreneurs to launch their company through an immersive 3-6 month program. Startups accepted into the programs gain access to business mentors, technical and design experts, office space and resources to help entrepreneurs quickly scale their business. The accelerators are located in several cities around the world, including Bangalore, Beijing, Berlin, London, Paris and Tel-Aviv.

Through our global seed fund, we serve as a strategic partner and provide investments in early-stage companies. We focus on startups that align to Microsoft’s product strategy and draw on our unique experience, expertise and resources to help them reach new markets.
