Fairfax, VA - Mingle360 today announced that it has become a partner in Microsoft's® BizSpark™ program designed to help accelerate the success of early stage startups by providing key resources such as software, support and visibility.
Launched in November 2008, the BizSpark program is designed to help accelerate the success of entrepreneurs and early-stage startups globally. The program provides fast and easy access to current, full-featured software development tools and platforms, and a connection to over 2,000 BizSpark Network Partners – including university incubators, hosters, government agencies, investors, consultants and financial institutions – all with a common goal of supporting entrepreneurship.
“We are thrilled to participate in the BizSpark program,” says Dan Coffing, CEO of Mingle360. “We personally met with key BizSpark team members at the 2010 Worldwide Partners Conference in Washington DC and shared our company goals and vision. The BizSpark team is definitely focused on helping startups succeed and we look forward to building our relationship over the coming months. Mingle360 continues to close new sales deals and gaining marketplace visibility is extremely important. We seek to leverage the BizSpark program for greater marketing exposure to investors, customers, partners and press.”
"We're really excited to be working with Mingle360 in our BizSpark program," says Microsoft Startup Evangelist Brian Johnson. "Keeping track of new contacts at events is important, but usually difficult to do. MingleSticks make it easy and we're excited to see what the future holds for Mingle360."
Offered as a service to event organizers, the Mingle360 solution greatly enhances attendee networking at the event, surpassing business cards with up to date contact information and even facial recognition. It creates 'buzz' and excitement at the event and helps differentiate the organization from the competition. For more information, please contact Mingle360 at 703-425-0402, or by clicking here.
