Sanjay Jain, Microsoft ISV Architect Evangelist, announced the 2nd CRM incubation week event.
On popular demand after very successful 1st CRM Incubation Week, we are pleased to announce 2nd CRM Incubation Week (Boston, week of 20th, April)…
Check out Sanjay’s blog for details and to nominate your company to participate in the event.
I’m excited to be an advisor to the startup teams again. Jim Steger, CRM Development expert from Sonoma Partners and co-author of the popular books Programming Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0, Working with Microsoft Dynamics(TM) CRM 4.0, and Microsoft® Dynamics(TM) CRM 4.0 Step by Step, and Ross Lotharius, CRM Expert from the award-winning CRM consultancy, Ascentium, will also be there as advisors. There will also be a panel of investors and industry experts there to give advice. Microsoft team members will also be there providing great advice, technical expertise, and giving you the opportunity to make great connections.
Sanjay and the rest of the Microsoft team orchestrated a fantastic event back in mid-December 2008 and I expect the 2nd event to be even better. If you are a startup looking to build a vertical industry application on a PaaS platform, this event is an unbelievable way to kickstart your business.
For the first event, five startups were selected from a field of 50 applicants. Each of those five startups were able to build a working, compelling prototype, get great advice on technology and business planning, make great connections and friendships, and generate buzz about their venture. That’s a lot of value for the cost of a plane ticket and 4 nights at a hotel. So hurry up and get your nomination in. You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity.
