Mayor of London partners Microsoft for scale-up support scheme

The Mayor of London is teaming up with Microsoft to support the growth of the city’s leading scale-up companies.

The collaboration with Microsoft will enable the 17th cohort of companies selected for the London & Partners Mayor’s International Business Programme to tap into the technology giant’s expertise to help them grow their operations.

The scale-up businesses selected for this year’s programme include companies in the financial, business services, technology, creative, urban and life sciences sectors.

The collaboration with Microsoft will add engagement opportunities and technical and business support to the mentoring, workshops, access to trade missions and introductions to global corporates they already receive as part of the programme.

As a partner of the programme, Microsoft joins the likes of Collinson, KPMG, Lloyds Bank, Taylor Wessing and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said: “I’m thrilled Microsoft is continuing its collaboration with the capital’s tech sector and joining my International Business Programme as one of our official partners.

“As a world leader in the technology industry, Microsoft is uniquely positioned to offer London businesses the support they need to scale-up and make the most of their potential."

Amali de Alwis, managing director of Microsoft for Startups UK, added: “Startups are an indisputable innovation engine, and Microsoft is committed to partnering with founders and investors to help propel their growth.

"Technology has never played such a vital role in enabling businesses of all sizes to continue to operate and grow, as it does today - we are therefore pleased to announce our involvement in the London & Partners Mayor’s International Business Programme and look forward to supporting and enabling a wide range of London-based startups.”
