Microsoft is aiming to get in on Berlin’s startup action

With its Microsoft Ventures program, Redmond is essentially combining its existing start-up outreach initiatives — accelerators, seed funding (through the Bing Fund) and software support (BizSpark) — into one package, while launching a series of new accelerators around the world. The company has already operated accelerators out of Bangalore, Beijing, and Tel Aviv, but with the new program, it will expand to include Moscow, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, Seattle, and Berlin.

So why Berlin? In short, Microsoft sees opportunities in what has been called the Silicon Valley of Europe. #berlin #startup #microsoft

The software behemoth is set to join a growing fray of tech accelerators in the city.
