Nightingale HQ joins Microsoft Cloud Accelerator

We are delighted to announce that Nightengale HQ has been selected to be part of the Women in Cloud (WiC) Microsoft Accelerator 5.0. The 6 month programme has been designed to accelerate women-led tech businesses to co-build, co-market and co-sell with Microsoft.

The programme places a heavy emphasis on winning enterprise cloud opportunities and developing a solid co-sell plan. It also offers powerful networking opportunities and a chance to promote your business on a global stage.

This is the first year the programme is remote, making it even more accessible to participants from around the globe. There are 17 companies taking-part from the US, Canada, India and the UK.

Nightingale HQ's CEO Steph Locke added that 'We see the WiC Accelerator as the perfect opportunity to increase our cloud solutions presence and accelerate our Microsoft co-selling plans. It's also incredible to get access to world-class mentoring and support from those who have gone before us'.

The first session kicked off in February with a panel of industry trailblazers including Chaitra Vedullapalli President of WiC; Kim Smith IBM; Brea Starmer Lions + Tigers; Ellen Feaheny AlohaCloud Digital Networks; Martha Montoya agTools Inc and Patti Dobrowolski Up Your Creative Genius who illustrated the first session brilliantly.

The cohort 5.0 offers many benefits including azure credits, listing on marketplaces, participating in global UN focused campaigns, bi-weekly office hours, monthly live chats with industry leaders, and continued access to industry stages, has elevated our programming to an unmatched scale.
