About Microsoft for Startups

Unlocking $1B in Sales Opportunities for B2B Startups

Two years ago, we announced an ambitious goal to become the leading enterprise cloud for B2B startups in the world. Called Microsoft for Startups, we launched a founder-first program that delivers the technology, go-to-market, and community benefits needed to catalyze startup success. Thousands of startups from more than 140 countries have connected their game-changing solutions to our enterprise customers. Startups active in our program are on pace to close more than $1 billion in new sales opportunities over the next year alone. To celebrate tomorrow’s hyper-scale companies, we are expanding member benefits to include GitHub Enterprise and Microsoft Power Platform.

Some helpful guidelines

We prioritize enterprise technology, or B2B, startups who can best serve our customer base and will benefit most from the program.

New member applicants are evaluated using the following criteria:

  • Less than seven years in existence
  • Less than $25M in total annual revenue
  • Seed, Series A, B, or C stage (or validated equivalent)
