Microsoft Ventures launches dedicated hotline for Indian start-ups

Microsoft Ventures in India has announced the launch of \\\"JumpStart,\\\" a hotline to provide start-ups and entrepreneurs with a resource to ask business and technical questions.

Microsoft Ventures in India has announced the launch of "JumpStart," a hotline to provide start-ups and entrepreneurs with a resource to ask business and technical questions. Open during business hours Monday-Friday (9am to 5pm IST), a team of dedicated professionals will be available to answer questions at 1 (800) 200-2114, a toll free number across India.

 

"Microsoft Ventures supports start-ups at every stage of maturity by providing them with the tools, resources and expertise they need to succeed," said Joseph Landes, General Manager, Developer & Platform Evangelism, Microsoft India.

 

"Our experience has shown that a major pain point for start-ups across the ecosystem in India, irrespective of their stage of maturity, is the lack of real-time support for various critical queries they face. JumpStart fills a major gap and ensures that start-ups get professional advice that enables them to make smart business decisions," said Landes.

 

Explaining the importance of this service, Kattayil Rajinish Menon, Director, Microsoft Ventures in India, who is responsible for community and ecosystem engagement, said: "Sometimes answering even simple questions about how to get started or which service provider to contact can really help start-ups avoid delays and cost overruns."

 

Ravi Gururaj, Chair, Nasscom Product Council, who has been associated with Microsoft Ventures since its inception in India, said: "Product companies and start-ups are the next growth engines for the Indian industry and we at Nasscom along with Microsoft Ventures are working on several initiatives to promote this sector.”
