Bridge Incubation Group Selected to Join Microsoft BizSpark Program

Global Program Fosters the Success of Innovative Startups Committed to Microsoft Platform Technologies

's-Hertogenbosch/the Netherlands, (PresseBox) - The Bridge Incubation Group today announced that it has been selected to join the Microsoft BizSpark Program as a Network Partner. The BizSpark Program is a new global program designed to accelerate the success of early stage Startups by connecting them to Network Partners: active members of the global software ecosystem who can provide mentorship, guidance and resources to BizSpark Startups. BizSpark creates an ongoing, mutually beneficial ecosystem between Microsoft, Startups and Network Partners.

"It's great to see entrepreneurs starting a software company. Once the decision is made, the design done and the development close to beta or release date, the solution needs to be marketed", said Johan Pellicaan, CEO of the Bridge Incubation Group. He continued: "at Bridge, we help Startups with Business Development, Product Management, Sales and Marketing, providing them an easy path to enter the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) market".

Microsoft is committed to helping entrepreneurs to transform their ambitions into sustainable, dynamic businesses and to foster innovation and entrepreneurialism. To this end, the BizSpark Program provides Startups with software, support and visibility at a time when they are most valuable and least affordable-during their first three years, with no upfront costs and minimal requirements.

"We understand the difficulties Startups face in trying to create a viable, scalable and sustainable business, especially in today's economy", says Mark Voermans, Microsoft. "Microsoft stimulates innovation: with BizSpark Startups get the opportunity to let their business grow by taking advantage of the breadth of the Microsoft platform, our global partner ecosystem and new ways to gain market exposure. Bridge knows the Microsoft ecosystem. Such help and insight is very valuable for any Startup BizSpark gives Startups fast and easy access to Microsoft's current full-featured development tools, platform technologies as well as production licenses to bring to market innovative and interoperable solutions for the next generation of user experiences.

To be eligible for the Microsoft BizSpark Program, Startups must be actively engaged in development of a software-based product or service that is a core piece of their business model, have been in business less than three years at the time of enrollment, and have less than USD$1M in annual revenue. Startups may enroll for the program by obtaining an enrollment code from a designated BizSpark Network Partner.
