Awesome offer for new startups from Microsoft
I recently visited one startup company in Copenhagen to talk about their CRM system and see how I can help them to customize the system for their business process.
They told me about this offer from Microsoft for startup companies that are less than 5 years old.
Microsoft have a program that is named BizSpark for new startups that gives free access to many of their software for free, including Dynamics CRM Online!
I didn’t know about this and want to share it with you.
