Microsoft Industry Collision Day happening at Communitech on February 12th

February 12, 2015

Free

Communitech Tannery
Microsoft is closely watching what’s happening in Waterloo Region tech and looking to form deep connections with local companies in a variety of ways – regardless of the platform on which you develop.

Connect with Microsoft’s top influencers at Communitech’s next Industry Collision Day.
Microsoft will send top influencers to our region to meet with high-potential startups. You’ll learn about self-serve programs like BizSpark, and the Microsoft Ventures Accelerator, for which they are actively seeking Canadian companies to participate in the next Seattle cohort.

This is your chance to get in front of:
Mukund Mohan, Director at Microsoft Ventures
Alec Saunders, Principle Developer Evangelist, Microsoft
Mickey MacDonald, Developer Evangelist, Microsoft Canada

The event will include:
– 1:1 meetings with select startups that are relevant to Microsoft’s model, mandate or market
– An overview of relevant programs that can help drive your startup to success
– Connections with Microsoft Canada’s Developer Evangelist, who can provide local support for your startup

And the day doesn’t end there … Check out what’s happening that evening at Microsoft Loves Startups where you’ll hear why our locale is the place to be for startups and learn how Microsoft helps entrepreneurs.

Application and registration deadline is Friday, February 6 at midnight.
