Microsoft Bizspark
Microsoft® has an exciting new program specifically designed to provide early stage Startups like yours with software, support, and visibility to help ignite your success. The program, called BizSpark™, provides access to: ·

Software. Join BizSpark and you’re just clicks away from having access to current, full-featured development tools, including Visual Studio Team System, plus production licensing to develop and bring your solution to market. ·

Support. BizSpark provides you with professional technical support from Microsoft and connects you to a global community of business experts who can help guide you through the hurdles of growing your business. ·

Visibility. Through BizSpark, you’ll have the opportunity to achieve global visibility to an audience of potential investors, clients and partners.

Eligibility requirements are minimal: If you're a privately held company building a software-based product or service (even using open source code), in business for fewer than three years, and with less than USD$1M in annual revenue, you're in!

To join BizSpark, you must be sponsored by a BizSpark Network Partner, such as ISORATEK.

 When you’re ready to sign up, contact us about sponsorship and get your enrollment code. Once you have your enrollment code, joining BizSpark is fast and easy. No payment or credit card information is required, and there are no upfront costs. (Microsoft will assess a USD$100 program offering fee at the end of participation in the program, or the end of three years, whichever comes first.)
