Get Your Project Fired Up - Free Software From Microsoft

Posted 09 February 2009 - 04:53 PM

Dream.In.Code has been selected to join the Microsoft BizSpark Program as a Network Partner. Microsoft® BizSpark is an exciting program specifically designed to provide early stage Startups with software, support, and visibility to help ignite your success. The program, called BizSpark™, provides access to:
  • Software. Join BizSpark and you’re just clicks away from having access to current, full-featured development tools, including Visual Studio Team System, plus production licensing to develop and bring your solution to market.
  • Support. BizSpark provides you with professional technical support from Microsoft and connects you to a global community of business experts who can help guide you through the hurdles of growing your business.
  • Visibility. Through BizSpark, you’ll have the opportunity to achieve global visibility to an audience of potential investors, clients and partners.
Eligibility requirements are minimal: If you're a privately held company building a software-based product or service (even using open source code), in business for fewer than three years, and with less than USD$1M in annual revenue, you're in!

To join BizSpark, you must be sponsored by a BizSpark Network Partner, such as Dream.In.Code. You’ll find more program details here. When you’re ready to sign up, PM me about sponsorship and get your enrollment code.

Once you have your enrollment code, joining BizSpark is fast and easy. No payment or credit card information is required, and there are no upfront costs. (Microsoft will assess a USD$100 program offering fee at the end of participation in the program, or the end of three years, whichever comes first.)

Get your Startup fired up! Visit the Microsoft Startup Zone to learn more!

I tried sending you a PM about sponsorship for the BizSpark program, but I am not yet allowed to use the messenger service on this board. Please hit me up about this via email, scribs [at] gmail <dot> com.

Thanks

Aaron

Yeah, how do we get more information? Or do we really have to spam 10 posts on the boards before we can PM you.. ;)

Dreamspark is handy, but the software specifically cannot be used for commercial purposes, if you're like me and you actually care about licensing restrictions :)

The Bizspark software is not under those restrictions... not to mention you get access to the Team System versions and TFS.

I'd also like DIC sponsorship in BizSpark (but am too new to PM).
