Eventopedia – an online community for corporate meetings and event planners – has announced that it has been accepted into the Microsoft BizSpark Plus programme.
BizSpark Plus is offered to a select number of start-up and scale-up businesses considered to have a high growth potential in their markets. Eventopedia has been awarded US$120,000 of Azure cloud services over two years, as well as technical support and a range of other services.
This sponsorship will enable Eventopedia to focus investments elsewhere, such as hiring developers, extending destination coverage, investing in marketing, and customer acquisition.
Eventopedia CEO, Toby Heelis, said: “We are delighted to be working so closely with Microsoft and to have been accepted onto the BizSpark Plus programme. It’s extremely encouraging to have such validation for our product and future development plans, and it provides our customers with added confidence in both our current and future developments.”
