Session 27: Microsoft Open AI

Microsoft has a strong open-source program that encourages contribution, respects license obligations, and allows engineers to use open source with ease, work in the open, release projects, and be secure.

Today, it’s not uncommon that we use over 150,000 open-source components each month while building products and services.

Relentless automation, engineering system innovation, and making it easy for our developers to “fall into the pit of success” have been key to using open source at enterprise-scale.

Here are just a few of the ways that we’ve built a strong open-source program. We’re sharing our process in hopes it helps others be more successful in open source too.

Techstars is an investment company that offers accelerators and investing for early-stage companies.  The company has accepted over 2,500 portfolio companies with a combined market capitalization of $52.2bn USD. Fewer than 1% of applicants are accepted into Techstars accelerators, however, 85% of Techstars’ accelerator graduates are either in business or have had a successful exit after 5 years.

A strong startup ecosystem with the right resources and support produces better entrepreneurial outcomes, creating an engine for innovation, growth, and job creation. In partnership with GO Virginia, 757 Accelerate, and 757 Angels, Techstars will provide support to build and strengthen the Hampton Roads startup community and introduce more Hampton Roads companies into the Techstars pipeline. The objectives of this engagement are to assess the current state of entrepreneurship in the Hampton Roads region, drive more engagement between and around local founders, and to nurture a larger, self-sustaining, resilient, and inclusive environment for entrepreneurs.


An open Q&A session will be available to ensure that everyone understands the opportunities brought by VEDP.
