Chosen for sophisticated analysis and explanatory graphics of news content

(PresseBox) (London, ) Silobreaker (www.silobreaker.com), the innovative search service for news and current events, has been selected to join Microsoft's sought-after Startup Accelerator programme, which is made available only to a small number of high potential startups. The announcement was made today by Microsoft.

"We set out to provide a search service that delivers intuitive search results, so people can spend more time learning from the web and less time searching it" commented Silobreaker CEO, Kristofer Mansson. "Since our launch at DEMO 08, we have been very pleased by the response, and to get Microsoft's recognition, support and access to their world leading product and market expertise will be invaluable as we continue scaling our business."

Microsoft evaluates hundreds of technology startups each year to identify those with the strongest potential to succeed, shape the industry's future, and enhance the overall value of Microsoft products and services for customers. The Microsoft Startup Accelerator Programme shines the spotlight on some of the most promising startups, which are given access to Microsoft tools and services to accelerate their commercial success. The support ranges from consulting services and early access to technologies to software, licenses, channel and marketing support.

Lars Lindstedt, Software Economist, Microsoft UK commented, "We took special notice of Silobreaker because they offer a completely new way to absorb news content. With an ever increasing flow of information, a service like Silobreaker's will fast become a necessity. We look forward to working with them and helping them realise the potential of their innovative technology and service."
