Microsoft R&D Israel




We believe that a strong, thriving high tech industry is good for Israel as well as good for Microsoft and aim to help startups achieve their visions.

The ILDC Industry Outreach team is responsible for helping support Israel's high-tech community and managing the dialogue between Israeli startups and Microsoft. The team meets regularly with Israeli startups to understand their technology, business model, and challenges, and to tries to locate the right contact within the global Microsoft organization.

In addition, the Outreach Team works in coordination with strategy and product groups across different Microsoft Business Groups to understand their directions and needs in order to identify potential startup partners in Israel.

The Industry Outreach team also manages the Microsoft BizSpark One program in Israel, identifying potential BizSpark One companies and managing the BizSpark One nomination and engagement process.
