The Institute of Indian Technology (IIT Bombay) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Microsoft to empower and support start-ups. This collaboration between the two has been established under IIT Bombay’s umbrella organization, the Society for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SINE). With this collaboration, SINE and Microsoft aim to explore various opportunities to help and provide for startups at SINE, as they will also avail benefits of Microsoft’s software and services, while also having access to GitHub, M365 resources, training, and skilling on Azure, as well as mentor networks.

This partnership is a great opportunity for IIT Bombay’s students as they will get access to Microsoft’s leadership, industry experts, Microsoft Valuable Professionals (MVPs), Azure influencers, and startup founders. 

The startups that get selected to Founder’s Hub by the two institutes will also have the opportunity to be a part of the Azure community program, and other ongoing developer campaigns by Microsoft, like the Azure Developer League, Azure Blogathon, Hackathons, Open Hacks, and Imagine Cup.

“With more and more focus shifting towards cloud-based technology solutions across different sectors, Microsoft’s history and experience of being the leading global technology giant will surely benefit our startups. We hope they can leverage this partnership to the fullest,” Poyni Bhat, Chief Executive Officer, SINE said.
