The London & Partners’ Mayor’s International Business Programme has today announced a new strategic partnership with Microsoft.
Sadiq Khan’s international business programme has teamed up with the global tech giant in a bid to support London-based scaleups with international growth.
Microsoft joins the likes of Collinson, KPMG, Lloyds Bank, Taylor Wessing and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati as a partner of the programme, which has already helped more than 900 London-based companies internationalise.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan commented: “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. I’m really looking forward to seeing the innovations that emerge from this important partnership.”
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 with the London & Partners’ Mayor’s International Business Programme and look forward to supporting and enabling a wide range of London based startups.”
