Microsoft BizSpark is a global program that helps startups succeed by giving free access to Microsoft Azure cloud services, software and support. BizSpark members receive up to $750 per month of free Microsoft Azure cloud services for 3 years: that’s $150 per month each for up to 5 developers. Azure works with Linux and familiar open source technologies such as Ruby, Python, Java and PHP. BizSpark is available to startups that are privately held, less than 5-years-old and earn less than $1M in annual revenue.

BizSpark is committed to helping technology startups realize their goals on their own terms and in the shortest amount of time. Through BizSpark, Microsoft’s goals are to:

  • Help young and innovative software companies gain valuable experience and expertise in Microsoft technologies, with no upfront costs.
  • Help startups establish connections with local and global startup ecosystems – VCs, angels, incubators, accelerators, entrepreneur associations, etc.
  • Stimulate vibrant local software ecosystems and promote innovation and interoperability.
  • Support the broadest possible startup audience in a way that complements their values and the organizations that support them.
