Visual Factories has been selected to participated prestigious Microsoft Accelerator 4-months program, aimed at helping startups scale in a vast selection of verticals
“This is a huge vote of confidence in our ability to make a difference in the global industrial world” says Matti Tiano, CEO of Visual Factories. “The Microsoft Accelerator was founded to help startups pave their road to success. We took part in this program to get exposed to Microsoft’s customers and partners around the world, gain increased visibility to investors and benefit from hands-on mentorship from top serial entrepreneurs. We also got access to professional sessions led by experts in customer development, marketing, funding, and much more. Many consider Microsoft as a leader in developer platforms and tools and a pioneer in cutting-edge cloud technologies. Microsoft Accelerator is the right partner for us when we look to create a competitive edge through the use of these technologies.”
Mr. Navot Volk, Director of Microsoft Accelerator in Tel Aviv says: “In choosing our batch 10 companies, we carefully selected those we believe have enormous potential to not only “make it big,” but, with the right help, can make a huge impact. Navot continues: “The startups will be introduced to various teams that are part of the Microsoft R&D Center. With startups in verticals such as Cyber Security, eHealth, IoT, Chatbots, Fintech, and Marketing Intelligence, we leverage our different areas of expertise, connect them to product groups for collaboration, and help them upgrade their cloud to Azure.
Microsoft’s help doesn’t stop there. 99% of global enterprises are Microsoft customers. The Tel Aviv accelerator furthers Microsoft’s partner-driven engagement strategy and leverages it to help startups scale. With our extensive business knowledge, we guide the startups throughout the program, provide them with hands-on mentorship, and 1:1 meetings with industry experts. At the end of the 4 months, our goal is to create long-term partnerships between these growing companies and Microsoft. After they graduate the program, our partnership continues through our success management program and customer access events.”
