In the last year, over 300 companies in Ireland and Northern Ireland have benefited from business and development support from the Microsoft BizSpark program.
WebsiteSpark is Microsoft’s new program to help small web design and development shops by providing them with three things essential to their success at no upfront cost:
- Visibility through a marketplace and well as connections through marketing and business networking programs
- Support of all kinds, from tech support and training to a network of other development shops, hosting partners, developers and designers, and
- Tools to build products for your customers: Windows Server and IIS, SQL Server, Visual Studio, Expression and more.
If your company’s primary business is providing web development and design services and it has 10 or fewer people including owners and employees, it’s eligible for WebsiteSpark ! You’ll save money on tools and technology, benefit from support and training and gain an advantage through opportunities to meet new customers and technology partners. It’s visibility, support and tools — what a small web shop needs — all in a nice little package.
The IIA is a Network Partner on WebSiteSpark so please feel free to contact email@example.com to get involved.
This initiative was launched at the last TechLudd Social Networking event where Microsoft celebrated the success and growth of the organizations involved in Bizspark and the plans for WebSiteSpark.
