With SXSW about get underway, I wanted to provide a brief snapshot of some of the activities the Microsoft BizSpark team and our many startup partners have planned for the event, and also where you can find us in-person/online to get a better taste for the goings-on and the movers and shakers in attendance.
Front and center is the second annual Microsoft BizSpark Accelerator, a forum that is designed to help emerging companies launch the next wave of innovation in software. Starting on Monday, March 15, a total of 32 companies, led by some of the world's smartest entrepreneurs, will introduce new products and services that promise to set trends and drive new market opportunities, all in front of a live audience and a panel of experts.
Then on Tuesday, March 16 - just like NCAA March Madness - the 12 companies who advance from the day before will be invited back to present again to new judges, as they hope to win the Microsoft BizSpark Accelerator award, which will be announced at the end of day. We, as title sponsor, hope to see you there!
