Microsoft for Startups

Microsoft for Startups is a unique program designed to help businesses develop partnerships with Microsoft, and grow through access to technology, channels, markets and customers.

Ready-to-scale startups receive dedicated support and access to sell with our robust partner ecosystem and alongside our Microsoft sellers, in addition to free access to Microsoft cloud technologies, enterprise-grade technical support, and powerful development tools.

Amali is also a Board member at Ada National College for Digital Skills, on the D&I Board at the Institute of Coding, and Advisory Board member at the Founders Academy, and was a founding member at Tech Talent Charter.
