High-potential start-ups to benefit from Enterprise Ireland’s Microsoft partnership
Start-ups with global ambition will be given support to scale internationally with a suite of tools and sales avenues from Microsoft for Startups. Enterprise Ireland has teamed up with Microsoft for Startups to grant high-potential start-ups (HPSUs) access to a range of supports. The Microsoft for Startups programme provides up to $120,000 of free Azure cloud tech for two years, along with additional support and advice aimed at helping start-ups to scale internationally. Both Enterprise Ireland and Microsoft have expressed their commitment to support HPSU founders from a diverse range of backgrounds who are traditionally underrepresented with this programme. “We are very excited that our partnership with Microsoft will see more Irish entrepreneurs and start-ups access this unique offer,” said Jenny Melia, divisional manager for HPSUs at Enterprise Ireland.
