Modex, the blockchain database company, is proud to announce it has been accepted into the Microsoft for Startups program. This will give Modex direct access to the latest Microsoft technologies, resources and technology advisors, enabling us to accelerate our go-to-market strategy, and to work together with the Microsoft team in addressing common customers needs.

Two years ago, Microsoft announced an ambitious goal to become the leading enterprise cloud for B2B startups in the world. Called Microsoft for Startups, this founder-first program delivers the technology, go-to-market and community benefits needed to catalyze startup success. Since then, the industry has seen tremendous growth among B2B tech startups. According to PitchBook, venture capitalists bet $30 billion on enterprise startups in 2019, surpassing consumer tech funding for the first time in a decade. Microsoft for Startups has witnessed that momentum firsthand. Thousands of startups from more than 140 countries have connected their game-changing solutions to Microsoft’s enterprise customers. Startups active in the program are on pace to close more than $1 billion in new sales opportunities this year alone. In addition, Microsoft has pledged 500 million dollars to support startups with access to technology, community spaces, and sales opportunities over the next two years.

Kubernetes is quickly becoming the operating system for the Cloud and has the potential for massive benefits for technology organisations and developers. With all major cloud providers now offering their own native Kubernetes service, and several container orchestration platforms rebuilding with Kubernetes as an underpinning, Modex has been seeking a way to accelerate the development of scripts that enable rapid deployment of a blockchain node cluster in any customer’s cloud infrastructure. 

With this in mind, Modex looked for the right partner that could help it quickly and efficiently develop the Kubernetes scripts, while also allowing it to benefit from a stable technological partnership and an alignment of sales efforts. The acceptance in the Microsoft for Startups program gives Modex access to products and services, as well as startup-focused resources to leverage Microsoft networks and expertise.

Mihai Ivascu, CEO and Co-founder Modex: “I am thrilled, together with my team, to announce that we are now a part of Microsoft for Startups program. With both companies – Microsoft and Modex – focused on technological innovation and enriching consumers’ lives by bringing revolutionary tech products and services to the market, I am sure that we will build great products together. Products that will benefit not only individuals and companies, but also the society we live in, as a whole!”

“The Microsoft for Startups program was born out of listening to the needs of startup communities around the world who shared with us that the most valuable thing Microsoft could do, beyond providing them access to technology, was to connect them to new customers. It is with this insight in mind that we have developed our entire program and we are happy to bring more startups from the Romanian ecosystem into the program. Nothing makes us as happy as seeing innovative companies like Modex – access our technical and business resources in order to scale up and contribute to a sustainable and long term growth of our society”, said Daniel Rusen, Marketing & Operations Director, Microsoft Romania.
