Leading Startup Hubs Work With Microsoft To Promote Entrepreneurship In Canada

Quotes from Microsoft Ventures Partners:

"Having members of the Microsoft Ventures team onsite at MaRS offers tremendous value to the diverse and talented entrepreneurs who gather here from across many fields and focus on many different technologies and markets," said Salim Teja, Managing Director of MaRS' ICE practice. "We're thrilled to have them here as a resource for our startups."

" Montreal has a growing web culture, and being the "Home of the Web" allows us to be at the center of all things tech in Montreal. Having Microsoft Ventures and BizSpark permanently in the house has been a fantastic offering for the city's developers, who are constantly seeking to bring new innovations to the web space. An invaluable partner, they offer our visitors access to markets that they wouldn't have otherwise, as well as unparalleled support for our developers through their presence at the House." Said Alan MacIntosh, President of OSMO Foundation

"This relationship embodies the spirit of creativity and entrepreneurship here in Vancouver. Microsoft has been instrumental in the growth and establishment of Launch Academy as the Centre for Entrepreneurship in British Columbia.  We are excited to expand our relationship with Microsoft Ventures and continue building the vibrant startup ecosystem and prosperous economy we all aspire to achieve," said Ray Walia Executive Director, Launch Academy.
