At Microsoft we’re big on business and being proudly South African. For decades we’ve focused on becoming a strategic partner to the growth of this country by championing sustainable development through technology. In the early days our goal was to put a computer on every desk. Today we aim to change the lives of millions by developing products and solutions that people love and businesses need.
We firmly believe that access to education and opportunity is the foundation upon which great nations are built. That’s why we have invested in South Africa by continually supporting its rapidly emerging SME sector. Individuals who are brave enough to nurture their own creative ideas into platforms for job creation and economic growth should be celebrated. They are the engines that keep our country’s economy ticking.
With this in mind, we’d like to introduce Microsoft BizSpark.
