Microsoft has embraced a partnership with the Entrepreneurship & Innovation initiative at Georgia State. On March 28 and April 18, the company led two sessions of The Entrepreneur of the Future, which covered how to tech-enable a business. Held in conjunction with FlatironCity, the session offered entrepreneurs insight on how Microsoft is thinking about the future of computing and how those tools can help startups grow. Microsoft shared views on designing team diversity for success, creating synergy within a startup team and measuring progress in startup metrics. Participants also engaged in a live demonstration of Azure, a cloud-based computing tool. Tommy Patterson, a technical evangelist with Microsoft, led the workshop.
