Starting your own business is not easy. It takes good people, great ideas, lots of skills, time, money, dedication, perseverance and more than anything, it takes passion.

Microsoft wants startups to succeed and we're here to help. We have dedicated teams of technical evangelists who can work with you, providing guidance, expertise, experience and more. BizSpark is our program for startups, entrepreneurs and independent developers who want to leverage Microsoft technologies without investing any of their seed funding into software.

This session walks you through how Microsoft can help startups, how BizSpark works, how you can qualify, the benefits, how you can use your Azure credits, and more. Don't try to succeed alone. Work smart and partner up! Microsoft is here to help.

If you want me to visit your startup, Meetup, co-working space, incubator, event or association to deliver this presentation, don't hesitate to contact me directly.
