Uncrowd Joins Microsoft for Startups Program


Matthew | June 25, 2019

Uncrowd are delighted to announce that we have been invited into Microsoft’s Microsoft for Startups program. Access to the premium tier is by invitation only and usually sponsored by the likes of Y Combinator and Techstars; in Uncrowd’s case our sponsor is Microsoft themselves who are keen to put our revolutionary Friction Reward Indexing concept and tech in front of a range of their retail and consumer clients.

Chris Heap, Digital Transformation Lead for Retail & Consumer at Microsoft UK commented, “Uncrowd have an impactful and innovative approach to identifying, understanding and measuring customer behaviour and importantly, programmatic mechanisms that improve customer experience and propensity to buy. This is only possible by leveraging the power of the cloud and we’re delighted that Uncrowd have chosen Microsoft and Azure to help them build out their capability in this exciting space.”

Uncrowd CTO Rocky Howard adds “We are committed to utilising the very best tech and joining forces with Microsoft fits perfectly in Uncrowd’s plan for growth; our tech can be deployed on any cloud but we have always utilised a Microsoft-first stack. $120,000 in Azure credits and nearly $35k in developer tools therefore suit Uncrowd down to the ground, where the power and flexibility of the tools and the superb Azure environment make our development and deployment lives so much easier.”

This incredible support, which also includes a co-sell partnership across Microsoft sales people, significant go-to-market advice, top level engineering support and core startup mentoring, will help propel Uncrowd into a new division. We are excited to work with Microsoft and proud to be associated with one of the sharpest tools in the box of new era tech.
