Microsoft Ventures aims to help startups grow

Microsoft wants to help businesses, particularly startups to thrive and grow in today's fierce and competitive market. So it is launching a new program called Microsoft Ventures, a coordinated effort from the folks over at Microsoft.

It's not just about providing seed funding, says Rahul Sood, the General Manager of Microsoft Startups. The program also provides tools, resources, market routes, mentorship, technology tips, joint selling opportunities, and more.

For promising startups, Microsoft promises to "help in ways very few can match." BizSpark, an accelerator program and a seed fund that works with startups, will be joining in to offer access to Microsoft tools and technologies, including Windows and Office, Visual Studio, Windows Azure and more.

Entrepreneurs can apply to a 3 to 6-month program in various locations around the world - Bangalore, Beijing, Paris, Seattle, and Tel-Aviv. Soon, Berlin, Moscow, and Rio de Janeiro will be included in the list of locations.

In order to apply, one must have a full-time founding team and a strong vision to suceed. Furthermore, that company must have less than $1 million in funding. If you are interested, visit Microsoft Ventures here.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
