Founding a startup is hard, especially in the early days. To help with those challenges, Microsoft for Startups created Founders Hub, a digital platform to help all founders succeed, no matter their background, location, or progress. Microsoft for Startups Founder Hub gives founders free resources to help build a successful startup, including access to Azure credits, development tools like Github, mentorship resources, Microsoft productivity and collaboration software like Teams and Outlook and so much more.  Unlike others in the industry, it doesn’t require startups to be ‘investor-backed’ or third-party validated to sign up and access benefits – it’s truly open to anyone with an idea.
